The Annual Safety Assessment (ASA) is a key aspect of the department's risk management approach and supports monitoring the effectiveness of the department's health, safety and wellbeing systems. This information can be used to develop a plan to address safety issues.
During 2018, an electronic version of ASA completion and submission was trialled as a completion and submission option.
The electronic version is now the formal method for ASA completion. The ASA tool is located on OnePortal for department of education workplaces.
Action: Search OnePortal for 'Annual Safety Assessment' or 'ASA'.
