"Recreational mountain bike riding at Mt Stromlo Forest Park"

The University is committed to providing a workplace that is healthy, safe and without risk to the environment. During a recent University WHS Committee meeting, a discussion was held surrounding mountain bike riding at Mt Stromlo Forest Park. Whilst participation in recreational activities has shown to lead to many health benefits, some activities also present a number of hazards to riders health and safety. Even though this activity generally takes place during non-work hours (i.e. during travel to or from work) all RSAA staff, students and visitors are invited to participate in a collaborative discussion toward the development of a hazard management plan.
