4. Policy Statement

If conditions of work warrant the use of protective clothing and/or equipment, the University will provide these items and the staff member is required to use the items according to the provisions of the Queensland Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

Uniforms and protective clothing are supplied by each organisational unit and costs are normally met from organisational unit funds. The items supplied to staff remain the property of the University. Where the uniform or protective clothing is not supplied by the University, the staff member will be reimbursed for the actual cost of the clothing. This includes wet weather clothing where a general assistant (trades), skilled trades assistant, basic or advanced tradesperson, or staff in the gardener/grounds/farms or security career streams is required to work in the rain and the University does not supply waterproof clothing.
