Workplace Compensation and Injury Management

As the unit coordinator of this unit, I would like to first and foremost pay my respects to the traditional

custodians of the land upon which our university campus stands, and their connection with this land.  I

acknowledge and offer my respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and people for their

care of the land through their communities and culture, which we have the great fortune of enjoying.

this semester;

  1. Check your ECU student email regularly;

Contacting your lecturer

Your lecturer’s contact details are available on the front page of this document and on Blackboard > Staff

Contacts.  Please refer to ‘email protocols and expectations’, to guide your communication with your

lecturer.  Questions of a personal nature, such as notification of illness, sharing personal learning

requirements or issues, should be emailed to your lecturer, from your ECU student email account.  All other

generally run using Adobe Connect software and will be indicated in the Study Schedule.  To participate in

these tutorials, you will need a headset with microphone, preferably with a USB connection, plus a reliable

Internet connection.  We recommend testing your headphones and microphone before an Adobe Connect
