About this publication

This handbook is intended to help people with management responsibility for occupational health and safety (OHS) in schools – such as principals and assistant principals, and leadership team members responsible for budgets, facilities and purchasing – to understand their roles in improving the OHS performance of Victorian schools.

Designed to be a simple and practical guide, it is relevant to all Victorian schools, whether they are government, independent or Catholic. It will also be useful for school-based health and safety representatives (HSRs) who represent staff working in schools.
