Health and safety risk management

Managing risk is an integral part of ensuring the heath, safety and wellbeing of all at USC. The following resources have been provided to assist the USC Community in minimising risks in any activities, work or study they undertake at, or for USC.

Contractor management

Safe work environments

Event safety

Any individual or group organising an event (of any nature or size), on any USC campus, must complete all three campus event risk assessments:

If the event is off campus, but still considered a USC event, a risk assessment is still required, please contact for more information.

Risk Assessment and Management

We all have obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (Qld) to:

  • eliminate risks to health and safety where possible
  • minimise risks as far as is reasonably practicable where eliminating them isn’t possible.

If you are undertaking a task, project or activity and it is foreseen that there is risk to health and safety, a risk assessment must be undertaken. Please refer to 'Risk assessment and management' for information regarding how to complete a risk assessment.

Please contact for a copy of our risk assessment template.
