Safety, Health and Injury Management and Wellbeing

Diving and Boating Safety Committee

Our role is to develop and assist in the implementation of the UWA safety, health and wellbeing programs in order to minimise the risk of injury, illness and property damage.

We provide consultancy and other services to promote best practice and legislative compliance in all University and related activities.

Further information

The main role of this committee is to assist and advise the University in complying with legislation which sets out the requirements for ensuring the health and safety of all participants in scientific diving, snorkelling and boating activities. The committee provides a forum to raise and resolve health and safety issues, review procedures and to promote programs for continuous improvement. It may be called upon to investigate water-related incidents, injuries and violations of procedures and make recommendations of appropriate disciplinary action in the event of unsafe diving or boating activities by any individual or group within the University. The Diving and Boating Safety Committee is an affiliate of the University Safety Committee.
