Faculty Work Health and Safety - General
Working from home.
The Faculty does not support home-based work arrangements on an ongoing basis but recognises that staff will be required to undertake work from home from time to time. In these cases a risk asssessment of the area to be used needs to be undertaken by the employee. A proforma check list is provided to assist in assessing risks involved.
Training is an important part of the University's strategy to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its employees. The University offers a wide range of Health and Safety Courses throughout the year. All courses are free to Macquarie University Staff. The Training Schedule is regularly updated with new courses as they are announced.
