Caulfield Campus Redevelopment

Wednesday, March 30th, 2022

Caulfield Campus Upgrades to Buildings B & C

Monash is planning several important upgrades and improvements to our Caulfield Campus in 2022.

Part of the plan is to remove the escalators in Building B in April to provide additional usable floor area in Building B.

The existing escalator space will be converted to a diverse informal foyer/ seating lounge on each level to support interactive learning experiences and contribute to the ongoing vitality, function and activation of the Caulfield campus.

During this period we encourage staff and students to use the 3 staircases within the building complex, especially for single floor changes.

Health & Wellbeing signage will be erected to help promote this initiative. For staff and students who can’t use the staircases, are travelling many floors or require wheelchair access, please use the existing lifts (available for usage until mid-January 2023, at which point they will be replaced).

Additional Lifts

As part of the work, we’re also installing additional lifts to provide better vertical transportation within the building. The new lifts will be available ready for usage in January 2023.

To build the new lift core, the existing Campus Community Division area in building C level 1 will be demolished to make way for the new lift core structural foundations and lobby space. Hoardings will be erected outside Building C and in Building C Level 1.

Thank you for your patience while these important redevelopments occur. Please contact DSS if you have any questions or concerns about access.

Accessible Public Transport Review

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022

Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport – Have Your Say!

Did you know that one in 6 people aged 15 years and over with disability have difficulty using public transport?

A package of reforms are being proposed to reform the Transport Standards to improve public transport accessibility across Australia for people with disability.

People with disability, carers, advocacy groups, the transport industry and government are being encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed reforms.

Access to Public Transport

Access to public transport is critical for people to fully participate in the community and the economy. It enables people to travel to work or study, connects them to family, friends and their community and provides access to services such as healthcare and education.

The challenges people with disability may face when using public transport can include:

  • lack of access to physical infrastructure
  • difficulty in accessing information suitable to their needs
  • challenges with safely navigating a successful public transport journey.

The Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 (Transport Standards) provide certainty to providers and operators of public transport services about their responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 DDA.

The Standards are in place to ensure a person with disability is afforded equitable access, service and safety levels, and to remove discrimination.

Have your say by phone, online and through in-person discussion groups by 9 August.

How Businesses Can Lead on Disability Employment

JobAccess Webinar – How Australian Businesses Can Take the Lead on Disability Employment

More than 113,000 Australians with disability are currently unemployed and looking to work*.

Is your organisation ready to employ their skills?

Australian businesses are at risk of missing out on the potential of disability employment due to the lack of exposure, low awareness and limited knowledge about the supports available.

A recent JobAccess survey found that 7 in 10 people have not heard of workplace adjustments, which can be a powerful asset to build a truly inclusive and accessible workplace.

Join the JobAccess free 35-min webinar where they will discuss how employers can tap into workplace adjustments to attract, employ and retain people with disability.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Gather insights from JobAccess’ national survey on the general awareness of disability and workplace adjustments.
  • Hear first-hand from large organisations and self-employed people with disability on the impact JobAccess has made in their workplace.
  • Learn about the wide range of free supports available to assist employers and people with disability at work.

Webinar Details

Time: 11.30 am to 12.05 pm AEDT
11.00 am to 11.35 am ACDT

Tertiary Access for Blind or Vision Impaired

Friday, March 25th, 2022

Guidelines – Online Tertiary Access for Students and Staff who are Blind or Vision Impaired

Increasingly there are demands on educators to integrate technology into tertiary education and training.

However the technology must be both accessible and inclusive to create equitable learning experiences.

Learners, educators and other professional staff who are blind or vision impaired and studying or working in the tertiary sector in Australia often experience a range of barriers, particularly when the learning is provided online.

Online Resource

This online resource has been produced by the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) in partnership with the National Disability Coordination Officer Program (NDCO) program and Blind Citizens Australia (BCA).

The development of these Guidelines was funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment. Released March 2022
