Occupational Health, Safety & Welfare Policy


Mary MacKillop Catholic School values the care and concern for the health, safety and welfare of people using school facilities. 


Dignity, safety and wellbeing of people are central to the Church’s teaching.

Mary MacKillop Catholic School acknowledges this and recognises that it is obligated under the Queensland Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995 to ensure the health and safety of each of its workers at work. Additionally, it is obligated to ensure other persons are not exposed to risks to their health and safety arising out of the conduct of School business or undertaking.


The purpose of this policy is to assist in developing, promoting and maintaining a safe and healthy working and learning environment; and to provide a basis on which a sound occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) is built. Through such properly established and implemented systems, students, staff, contractors and other persons with a legal right to be on school premises, will comply with the requirements of the Queensland Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995.
