UNSW aims to provide a physically safe, healthy and secure learning and working environment for all students. The lecturers are responsible for your safety during dedicated teaching time. In return you are expected to behave with respect toward them and your fellow students; you are expected to follow instructions from lecturers. If you are concerned about your health or safety during a lecture or practical class please tell a lecturer immediately.
We have identified hazards during lecture and practical classes and outlined them in a student risk assessment. It is important that you familiarise yourself with these and the control measures in place to prevent harm to you and others. Your lecturer will remind you of the hazards at the start of each lecture.
You must wear a laboratory coat at all times while in the dissecting room and in other laboratories when mentioned in the Student Risk Assessment. Entry without a lab coat is not permitted and students found without a lab coat will be asked to leave. This is not a requirement in computer laboratories.
Students conducting research in the School of Biomedical Sciences should refer to the Staff School of Biomedical Sciences Health & Safety webpages.
