Our strategic plan (PDF, 326.9 KB) outlines our vision towards 2021.

By the end of 2021, we intend UQ to be recognised as a health, safety and wellness (HSW) leader in the sector, and to have these HSW attributes:

  • Managers and supervisors are aware that they influence the safety culture in their work areas and that their behaviour is the key to ongoing improvement.
  • Leaders demonstrate their accountability and personal commitment to UQ’s cornerstone HSW principles.
  • Staff and students are confident that their health and safety is protected at UQ and is given the highest priority.
  • People make informed decisions to prevent harm without constraining our core business of learning, discovery and engagement.
  • We create positive HSW opportunities rather than responding to negative consequences.

Our policy statement (PDF, 270KB) summarises how we will achieve our aim to be recognised as an HSW leader.

Watch Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Deborah Terry AO affirm UQ's commitment to our HSW vision.
