It is important that all students make every effort to avoid risks to themselves and to others by acting in a safe and responsible manner.


In particular you must:


  • pay attention to instructions from staff with regard to safety
  • work safely, for your own sake and others
  • take care as you go about the University
  • report any accident and get first aid treatment at once
  • report any hazard you spot to a member of staff
  • learn what to do in the event of a fire
  • respect the University no smoking policy
  • wear any personal protective equipment you are issued
  • think before you act - carelessness causes many accidents
  • take care and ask staff for advice with lifting any heavy objects
  • do not carry food or drink out of the refectory - if spilled they present a risk of slipping for all users of the building
  • on no account should food be eaten in a laboratory environment
