What are the Placement Safety Modules?

UQ has a duty of care to its students to ensure they are adequately prepared to commence placements.  Likewise, as a student, you are required to abide by UQ policies and procedures relevant to your studies including those related to occupational health and safety and fitness to practise.

Prior to commencing your first placement, the Health and Behavioural Sciences (HaBS) Faculty requires you to complete two placement safety modules and associated assessments that relate to Placement Safety and Managing Occupational Violence and Aggression.  You need to complete these modules in addition to any provider specific training that may be required of you.
