Health, Safety and Environment

Charles Darwin University has an obligation to provide safe environments and emergency response capability in the event of a critical incident, disaster, crisis or threat, in accordance with Work Health and Safety legislation. This extends to its staff; students; contractors; subcontractors; volunteers; visitors and other persons working at or studying at the University. 

The University’s emergency management procedures aim to minimise disruption to those affected by an emergency at the University.

In addition to providing a safe environment, CDU is committed to being a good steward of our natural environment. We aim to be a recognised innovator in sustainability education, research and community engagement.
