Safety, Health and Injury Management and Wellbeing

Chemical safety

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.

Chemical management

A large range of chemicals are used, stored, and disposed of at UWA. Some of these have the potential to harm people or damage property or the environment. You must know how to safety use, store, and dispose of the chemicals you work with.

Most of UWA’s chemicals are found in laboratories or workshops but most of our workplaces have some chemicals. All must be properly managed to minimise risks.

The quick action guide below provides advice on chemical management.
