- ensure that a risk/hazard management process is put in place to identify the potential and actual sources of harm
- ensure that controls are in place for managing risks and preventing harm to employees
- ensure information is made available to employers and employees for managing risks/hazards effectively and appropriately within the work environment
- ensure expert advice is available to all University staff, students, visitors, and contractors
