Changes to Emergency Assembly Areas
As you would now be aware construction for the new Early Start Facility has commenced, with a site area bounded by Buildings 22, 38, 30 and the adjacent Ring Road. This site will be in place until late 2014 when the project is due for completion.
Changes to Evacuation Assembly Areas have been necessitated as a result of the construction zone impacting on access to the Assembly Area F that had been in use for your Building up to this point.
The new Assembly Area F for Buildings 23, 25, 31 is now the grass area to the north of the construction zone at the western end of Building 23
A new Assembly Area N for Buildings 22, 38 and 30 has been created – situated in the grass area to the east of Building 30 near the BBQ.
A new Assembly Area L for Buildings 45 – 60 has been created – situated in the grass area beside the Gateway to Mt Kiera Sculpture (Wave)

Global Corporate Challenge
The Global Corporate Challenge (otherwise known as the GCC) is a health and wellbeing initiative which is available for UOW Staff to participate in from 23 May to 12 September 2013. The whole idea is to get us moving and encourage healthy lifestyle habits. Teams are formed of 7 willing participants who each receive a pedometer (accelerometer - see FAQ Document) to record their daily steps and log them online through the GCC Web Portal - it sounds a lot harder than what it is!
