Health & Safety Policy - Overview
This section provides details of the university's Health and Safety Policy.
It describes the university's Health & Safety Management System and provides a framework for the university's business that is research, educational, management and other activities.
We have adopted a health and safety management system that sets clear direction for us to follow to ensure that excellent health and safety standards are implemented. We will ensure that all staff are competent in managing their own health and safety and that of others. We will aim to measure the effectiveness of all our systems and processes regularly to ensure that we continually improve. The management of health and safety arrangements will be reviewed periodically to ensure that they are up to date and relevant.
