All new PhD candidates are required to complete the Health, Safety and Environment Generic Induction video as part of the onboarding process when commencing at JCU.
The JCU Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Unit will be launching a series of online training modules throughout the year via the HSE Training webpage with the aim of improving HSE awareness at JCU and to provide a flexible training delivery platform.
As researchers within JCU colleges, HDR candidates should undertake relevant Work Health and Safety Induction and/or training as members of those colleges. See the HSE website for information specific to biological and radiation safety and boating and diving safety.
HDR candidates should also be familiar with the University’s RiskWare online system for recording, assessing and managing risks; and reporting and managing incidents, injuries and hazards. For further information, visit the RiskWare website.
You will need to retain evidence of your attendance at a health and safety session in your ePortfolio. Please note that the GRS does not have access to these records so candidates must ensure that they obtain a record for themselves.
