What would you do if there was a fire? Take a roll call, headcount, or just leg it to the assembly point? Do you know where that assembly point is?
Fire safety is just one of the many areas of training which is either unpaid, inadequate or non-existent for casuals at Deakin University and #supercasuals have been out and about on campus talking about it.
It's time for Deakin to step up and start paying casuals to undertake required induction and training modules. We fighting for proper paid inductions for casually employed staff. No one else in the University sector is expected to stay on top of hundreds of pages of policies in their own time. It is ridiculous that Deakin University doesn’t pay casually employed staff to maintain up to date knowledge on its policies about Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), plagiarism, University Assessment Procedures and many other issues.
