Health & Safety Arrangements

The below linked codes of practice and guidance documents set out the arrangements in place to achieve the objectives described in our health and safety policy.

University Codes of Practice are drawn up in consultation with relevant Faculties/Directorates and external bodies, taking account of legal requirements and Higher Education sector good practice.  They are approved by the University Health & Safety Committee.  They are reviewed at least annually, as part of the review of the Policy, and as necessitated by changes to legislation and best practice, or identified shortcomings.

University Codes are topic specific and include detailed responsibilities and arrangements expected for the health and safety management of that topic.  Faculties and Directorates are expected to draw on these University Codes when carrying out risk assessments of their activities and drawing up local codes of practice setting out their detailed day to day arrangements for the work.
