Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing current procedures

These procedures provide guidance to implement practices which provide safe, supportive and healthy working and learning environments for DET workers and other persons involved in DET activities.

Interim arrangements as we transition to a redeveloped register

A project has been initiated to improve the register's user friendliness and functionality.

The redesigned register will provide a contemporary approach to store, search, navigate and access departmental policies and procedures.

In the interim, as new policies and procedures are being developed with a revised content structure, they can be accessed from the below table.
