WHS Audit


The Safety Management System Audit program is currently being planned to roll out from September through to November 2015. The new 3 year rolling audit cycle will then recommence in March 2016.

The purpose of the audit is to verify implementation of the Safety Management System (SMS) across the University.

The audit will take a tiered approach with due diligence reviews at the most senior levels of the organisation and more detailed style reviews at Faculty/PSU then operational levels.

The program is designed and informed by current industry best practice to drive sustained improvements in our safety culture and performance.
