Research ethics and safety
Before applying for ethics approval
Before you apply for ethics approval, complete the Research Initiation Guide (RIG) to identify any risks and hazards associated with your research. After you’ve completed the RIG, you’ll receive an automated email about any approvals you need from Curtin or government regulatory bodies before you can begin work, as well as advice about the appropriate controls for your risk assessment.
Health and safety risk assessment
You must complete a risk assessment for all research, including research that doesn’t involve hazardous materials. This ensures that you identify the hazards associated with your research and that appropriate controls are put in place.
