Evacuation Drill

As part of our Occupational Health and Safety compliance, please be advised of the following planned evacuation drills for Hudson Institute and Monash University research areas (excluding the animal facilities) to be held on Tuesday, 18 May.

The drills will be a coordinated exercise with Monash University and Monash Health.
