Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy


Schools can now visit the Policy and Advisory Library (PAL) for this information. This page will remain in this location but will be for corporate staff only. School staff should use PAL for all policy, procedures and other operational information.

The Department has a Health, Safety and Wellbeing (HSW) Policy, which documents the Department's senior executive commitment to legally and morally committing to ensuring healthy and safe working and learning environments in all Department workplaces. The Department recognises that employee health, safety and wellbeing (HSW) is integral to achieving excellent educational and work performance outcomes and commits, so far as reasonably practicable to:

  • Preventing workplace injuries and illnesses

  • Enhancing workplace culture

  • Consulting, collaborating and communicating with employees, health and safety representatives and other groups within the Department

  • Allocating adequate resources

  • Providing transparent and robust information, training and instructions and documentation

  • Driving continuous HSW improvement.

An important OHS activity is communication of the Department's HSW Policy to all employees. All employees should familiarise themselves with the HSW Policy which should be prominently displayed on the workplace's OHS notice board.​
