Road safety in and around schools

This information provides guidance to principals in addressing road safety issues in and around schools through education, infrastructure and collaboration.

Principals, in consultation with the school community and, where appropriate, as part of a SafeST review, are to assess the risks associated with traffic on nearby roads and provide student education or practical demonstrations regarding safe road usage, having regard to these risks.

Any road safety incidences in, and around the immediate vicinity of schools, must be entered in the MyHR workplace health and safety (WH&S) system.
