Policy statements

Departmental health and safety policy

SafetyHealth and Safety in the department is of the highest importance.

We expect all staff, students, contractors and visitors to share our commitment to safety by complying with our policies and procedures.

Where no Departmental policies or guidance exist we still expect our staff, students, contractors and visitors to meet the highest relevant standards and to comply with the relevant legislation.

Staff, students, contractors and visitors have legal and moral obligations to themselves and to one another.

The Department will provide, manage and maintain a work environment which is, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe and where risks to health are controlled.

The Department will offer training to all staff and students in safe methods of working and will foster responsible attitudes to health and safety. We undertake to continually review and develop our safety management systems.
