About Health & Safety Services

Find all the University's current health and safety information grouped together by topic.

The Health & Safety Services Team manages these pages. We hope they will provide you with all the information you need. But, if you cannot find what you want, or would like us to include something different, then please call us or send an email. We're always happy to advise and are very  open to suggestions.

From our A-Z guidance webpages, you can download or print the full text of Policies, Codes of Practice, Guidance and Checklist and Forms. There are also links to relevant internal and external sites.

The range and content of documents is regularly reviewed and revised. New items and updates will be added and some things will be removed as they become obsolete. If you have downloaded or printed documents in the past, do remember to check these pages to make sure you have the current version.

The Health & Safety Services performs the following functions within the university:

  • To advise on health and safety policy and legal requirements.
  • To monitor health and safety activities and report to the University Secretary, the University Health, Safety, Sustainability and Wellbeing Board, Vice Chancellors Executive Group and Governing Body Committees.
