Safety-first at Uni Melbourne

Staff protected against bar-fridge risk

A learned reader points to the university’s standard operating procedure for using this perilous appliance, (including always clean-up and keep clear of flammable liquids). This is a commendable commitment to work-place safety in the unaccountable absence of national university standards for fridge safety (where is the Higher Education Standards Panel, huh?). It is certainly to the level set by UNSW security and traffic management, which once warned people against workplace napping, “deep sleepers can sleep through fire alarms”, (CMM September 7 2015).
