The University recognises that success in achieving a healthy and safe workplace depends on the commitment and cooperation of staff, students and visitors throughout our campuses and at authorised external activities. All members of the University community must comply with the CDU Work Health and Safety Policy and should take reasonable care to prevent personal injury, injury to others and prevent or minimise damage to plant and equipment. Moreover, it is the responsibility of all members to bring to management’s attention potential hazards, unsafe conditions or practices.

Please note that all Incidents must be reported to your supervisor and the SEW Team on the Accident, Incident and Injury Report Form.

SafeZone – CDU’s on-campus safety application

safezone-appSafeZone is a free application for CDU staff and students that connects you directly to security services (24 hours a day). It's there for emergencies, but also for the times you just need some help or advice. It might be an escort back to your car or assistance for those with a disability.  With the application, you can:

  • Send your name and location directly to security during an emergency;
  • Ask for first aid or assistance;
  • Request a security guard to escort you somewhere on campus; and
  • Receive important notifications and messages from CDU Emergency Response Teams.
