Workplace health and safety committees

The structure of health and safety committees/forums throughout all levels of the Department is defined in the DETE Health, Safety and Wellbeing Communication and Consultation Flowchart Adobe PDF document External Link.

All schools and other departmental workplaces are required to establish a forum for health and safety issues. This can take the form of a workplace health and safety committee, or in smaller locations it might be more practical to use other consultative forums such as staff meetings to deal with health and safety issues.

Some issues identified at your location may not be able to be managed at the local level. These issues may have a broader impact and may exist in other departmental workplaces across the state. The DETE Health, Safety and Wellbeing Communication and Consultation Flowchart Adobe PDF document External Link provides the structure for escalating issues to higher committee levels.
