Health and safety structure and general health and safety responsibilities of postholders in the University.

Details of specific responsibilities are given, where necessary, in topic-specific Codes of Practice which are included under Arrangements.

The leadership and management of health and safety in higher education developed by USHA in partnership with UCEA gives guidance to all leaders and managers in HEIs to embed good health and safety management at each tier of the University.

The Health & Safety Organisation Chart [PDF document] provides visual summary of the health and safety structure.

The central H&S training matrix provides details of H&S training requirements for all staff and particularly those with specific H&S responsibilities.  This ensures that the University achieves the agreed staff competence levels as set by the University Health & Safety Committee. There will also be additional local requirements for health and safety training and these will be agreed at Faculty/Directorate/Unit level.
