Safety Officer Portal

Monash OH&S is pleased to formally announce the launch of the Safety Officer Portal - a place for Safety Officers, by Safety Officers. You can navigate to the portal by clicking the link below, or navigating to www.monash.edu/soportal.

The Safety Officer Portal is a project initiated by the Safety Officer Network Steering Committee. The main objectives of the portal are to:

  1. Formally welcome newly appointed Safety Officers;
  2. Provide specific information about the Safety Officer role, how Safety Officers assist with the management of OHS and the associated position responsibilities;
  3. Provide further education of the Monash University Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS), processes and activities frequently referred to and utilised by Safety Officers;
  4. Advertise Safety Officer networking opportunities and key events (MUOHSC meeting dates, document review periods, etc.);
  5. Enable Safety Officers to remain updated on items and initiatives coordinated by the Safety Officer Network Steering Committee;
  6. Provide opportunities for further communication, information sharing and collaboration between members of the Safety Officer community.

As part of the Portal, a specific Safety Officer Workplace discussion group has been setup to provide a platform for Safety Officer communication and collaboration. You may use the group to share ideas about solving safety issues, seek assistance from other Safety Officers that work with similar workplace hazards or request to borrow safety related equipment.
