Safety Management System

Our Safety Management System (SMS) is a part of the University’s overall management system.

It is multi-layered and includes:

  • Strategy
  • Policy and procedures
  • Management standards
  • Common processes
  • Performance standards for specific operational risk
  • Local implementation within organisational units.


Sustained implementation of the SMS by our faculties and professional service units helps to provide a systematic approach to managing the health and safety or our people, facilitating legislative compliance and improving our safety culture and performance.
