National Safe Work Month
Witches, ghouls and ghosts may haunt the minds of many when the word ‘October’ first pops into mind. However, the statistics of workplace health and safety can be much more harrowing than a Halloween horror house.
While most Australian employees return home after the working day, unfortunately, approximately 198 die each year as a consequence of workplace incidents. Over 111,200 serious claims are made each year. These deaths and injuries have a detrimental and personal impact on staff and their families, with substantial financial cost to the Queensland public.
This October, CQUniversity supports Safe Work Month and the event’s effort to make workplaces safer. This year the theme is “a moment is all it takes.” While it only takes a moment for a workplace incident to occur, there are measures you can take to learn about the risks and hazards to avoid these incidents.
In regards to this, CQUniversity offers many pathways if you are looking to learn more about the health and safety industry or upgrade your skills:
- As the statistics show, workplace health and safety is a vital issue in the Australian community. As part of the National Work Safety Month, events will be held across Queensland for the month.

Part 2: My Global Voices experience at COP23
So, this is my first time overseas, as apparently Tasmania and New Zealand don’t count. I feel so privileged to represent CQUniversity and to be selected for this prestigious Global Voices scholarship, it is like the last piece of the puzzle to my university journey.
After three long flights, and a train from a regional town in Australia I step foot in Germany, 15,039 km away from my home town of Townsville. The feeling is surreal, and my week has only begun!Continue reading Part 2: My Global Voices experience at COP23
My hopes to change lives with fitness
My name is Alisa Roberts and I’m studying a Certificate IV in Fitness at CQUniversity via online education. I’m a mum of two girls (11 and 14), and I run my own business, so online education is the best way for me to study.
The freedom and flexibility of studying by online education are the best part. But you’ve got to be disciplined with yourself. I studied most of my course; I had the opportunity to spend one week in the state-of-the-art facilities at the Mackay City campus as part of the practical requirement of the curriculum. They have a great campus with the all the machines and equipment. Continue reading My hopes to change lives with fitness
My unforgettable trip to China via CQUGlobal
My name is Ashley and I am a current fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Medical Sonography / Graduate Diploma of Medical Sonography program at the CQUni Melbourne campus.
I commenced study at CQUni in 2014 after completing a Bachelor of Health Science on the Gold Coast. Although I was born in South Africa, I moved to Australia when I was five, and now call Melbourne “home”.
In recognition of my academic achievement throughout my studies, I was invited to join the Golden Key International Honours Society in 2015, who partner with ‘Envision’ and the International Scholar Laureate Program (ILSP).
I was given the opportunity to explore health care and medical education in a different culture as part of the Delegation in Medicine and Science, hosted by the ISLP in China. The international program offers educational opportunities and experiences to high achieving students in delegations such as Medicine and Science, Engineering, Business, Nursing and Healthcare, and Diplomacy, visiting countries across the world.
As part of the experience, I travelled to Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
