If your research or teaching involves using genetically modified organisms (GMOs), quarantined materials, infectious microorganisms or biological hazards, you’ll need to work in accordance with all the relevant legislative requirements and at a standard that ensures the safety of staff, students, the wider community and the environment.

Hazard identification

Before conducting research or teaching activities at Curtin, you must identify the hazards inherent in your work, document your safety protocols in a written risk assessment, and seek any approvals you need from Curtin or Government regulatory bodies. To do this you need to complete the Research Initiation Guide (RIG).
