HIC provides a Student Manager to manage the welfare for all students. The Student Manager is available to assist students with any difficulties or personal problems they may experience.
Emergency Assistance & Medical Care
All students carry a student identification card with their address. There are many local doctors and hospitals located close to campus. See the Student Handbook and Orientation Guide for a list of emergency contacts.
First Aid Officers
HIC has Certified First Aid Officers who will assist with emergency first aid for students if required. For cases requiring further medical attention, students will be directed to the care of a qualified medical practitioner.
Work Health and Safety
HIC is committed to providing both students and staff with a healthy and safe working environment.
HIC recognises the significance of integrating health and safety into all activities. In compliance with the requirements of the relevant state and federal legislation and good established practices, the Institute aims to develop written policies and procedures, and to implement these in the workplace. Through integration of health and safety procedures and ideals into management and administrative structures the Institute will provide and maintain the highest possible standards of health and safety for staff and students while they are at work. The Institute will provide staff and students with guidelines on, and training in, safe work practices, as well as information pertaining to identification, assessment and control of workplace hazards.
Although the prime responsibility for health and safety rests with the employer, it is the responsibility of all employees and students to ensure their own health and the health of others by observing safe work practices and reporting potential hazards.
