Reminder to stay safe around building works

Posted by ac652 at Feb 11, 2020 03:37 PM |

There are a number of ongoing development projects across campus to update and improve our facilities.

Building sites can be dangerous places and require the use of hard hats and protective clothing. They also pose trip and fall risks. For your own safety, we’d like to remind you of the following:

  • Stay out of designated construction areas at all times. Access is prohibited.
  • Be aware of the risks of falling debris and construction related activities when moving close to construction sites.
  • Be aware of uneven surfaces.
  • Watch for slippery or muddy surfaces.
  • Make sure equipment operators can see you as you walk past.

The University will treat seriously any unauthorised person intentionally accessing a construction site for any reason. If you would like to report any incidents relating to the building work on campus, please contact the Student Support Team.
