These documents have been updated to comply with WHS legislation and reflect best practise.
The First Aid Policy and Procedure also provides ‘up to date’ guidance to staff First Aid Officers about their role in delivering effective first aid responses that support ACU to maintain its safe campuses.
The procedure highlights that WHS risk assessments will inform the University’s decisions about first aid provisions and the recruitment of staff First Aid Officers.
For ‘after hours’ first aid, activate the SafeZone App or call the ACU National Security Centre on 1300 729 452 or extension 8888.
New Incident and Hazard Reporting, Investigations and Corrective Actions Procedure
This procedure replaces the ACU Accident/Incident Reporting and Investigations Guidelines and is aligned with riskware, ACU’s incident and hazard reporting system and database, introduced in June 2016.
The procedure reinforces that both staff and students should log reports of incidents and hazards and Nominated Supervisors are responsible for reviewing these reports.
This review should inform the riskware Action Plans which are developed by Nominated Supervisors to reduce risks or resolve a report of a hazard.
Staff should also submit reports on behalf of visitors, volunteers and contractors.
The updated documents are available on the Policies & Procedures pages of the ACU website under HR and may be accessed via the links embedded above.
You may need to refresh the individual policy page to ensure that the latest version of the policy is displayed.
