Management review

To ensure the HSMA maintains currency with legislative requirements, senior management must regularly review work health and safety. WHS must be a standing agenda item on any senior executive or equivalent meeting to ensure the integrity of the HSMA. Deans and Directors must authorise and take appropriate actions to ensure they meet stated objectives in compliance with legislative, regulatory and HSMA requirements.

To ensure the continuing effectiveness of the University's HSMA, ANU will conduct periodic reviews of the system.

Work Environment Group

Work Environment Group regularly reviews the System through:

  • WHS audits as detailed in the annual audit plan
  • baseline assessments of the College and Service Division WHS Management Systems in areas throughout the University
  • WHS inspections
  • WHS investigations and
  • review of College and Service Division WHS Improvement Plans.
