Safety success is built on a foundation of knowledge

The University of South Australia is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and study environment for our employees, students, contractors, labour hire, volunteers, visitors and others associated with university business. This commitment is expressed in the Health Safety & Injury Management Policy.
