Health and Safety policy reissued

The University's Health and Safety Policy has been revised and re-issued, and copies are now available.


At a formal signing of the revised University Health and Safety Policy by the Vice-Chancellor and the Chair of Council, David Gray, the Vice-Chancellor reaffirmed that the health, safety, and welfare of staff, students and visitors is one of the University's highest priorities.

Sir Alan said: “Health and safety is a key priority for the Council and me.  We must be uncompromising in our commitment to health and safety – it is of critical importance.  We have strong foundations to build on – partnerships with our campus trades unions and staff have already had a positive impact at our University.  By continuing to be vigilant and working together we can make further improvements and sustain a safe and supportive environment in which both staff and students can flourish”.

Gary Tideswell, Director of Wellbeing, Safety and Health, was delighted to receive the signed Policy Statement highlighting “that such strong personal commitment, leadership and acceptance responsibility will enable every member of the University community to achieve good health and safety practice”

The Health and Safety Policy is a critically important document which sets out the University’s commitment to health and safety and the responsibilities of staff and students by their role.
