Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 the University as the employer is required to ensure that suitable and sufficient Risk Assessments are carried out of:
- the risk to the health and safety of their employees to which they are exposed whilst at work
- the risk to the health and safety of persons not in their employment, i.e. students, visitors and contractors
Deans of School/Directors of Service who have the responsibility for the management of the day to day running of the health, safety and welfare within their respective areas of control are requested to appoint Risk Assessors and to ensure that the required Risk Assessments are carried out within the School/Service.
Further information and guidance on any aspect of Risk Assessments can be obtained from the Health and Safety Team.
