Elder Conservatorium HSW (Safety)

The Elder Conservatorium of Music is committed to providing a safe work and study environment for our staff and students as far as is reasonably practicable. We strive to uphold the University of Adelaide's Occupational Health and Safety policies.

It is the responsibility of each employee to take reasonable care to protect his/her own safety at work. With this in mind the Conservatorium has collated the following information for staff about important OH&S matters. We hope that all staff and students take the time to familiarise themselves with this information.
