Access and After Hours Authorisation

At UNSW access to buildings is permitted between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday, without restriction.  Outside these hours only staff and students granted access (proximity card authorisation) by the Head of School (or delegated officer) are permitted to be in buildings occupied by BEES.

To minimise risks associated with working outside normal hours, all work undertaken within BEES, whether laboratory or clerical, must comply with the HS322 Working After Hours Guideline. This guideline covers all staff and postgraduate and honours students. An HS703 After Hours Approval Form for an appropriate period must be signed by the supervisor and given to the Health and Safety Manager before any such authorisation can be given.

Staff and students are expected to take all reasonably practical steps to ensure their own safety and security when working after hours. Supervisors should ensure that all their staff and students have been granted after hours approval if they intend to work on Campus over the Christmas Shutdown period.

All visitors are required to comply with the HS414 Visitors Guideline.  Visitors are the responsibility of the individual being visited. If a visitor is required to enter any room or laboratory for which an appropriate induction is necessary, then it is the responsibility of the individual being visited to provide such an induction, and to send a copy of the induction form to the Health and Safety Manager. Visitors who are working for or with BEES personnel should be supervised until they are deemed to be competent to work unsupervised for assigned tasks (based upon qualifications, training and experience).
