Students who are required to complete a placement must complete the Risk Assessment Task before they go out.

The Risk Assessments relate to general classroom teachers (Math, English etc.) and other specific placements relating to Science (Laboratory, Agriculture). All students will be required to read the Risk Assessments appropriate to them before they attend their next school placement.

The Risk Assessments are found on the UQ occupational health and safety site.
