University policy and health & safety management

The University Health & Safety Policy Statement and Organisation, together with the Arrangements Chapters set out the principles of how health and safety is managed across the University. They are approved by the Board of Governors, and satisfy a specific legal requirement.

Responsibilities of heads of faculties, schools and directorates are described in the Organisation, and should help in the development of local health and safety policy statements, associated organisation and the arrangements for managing health and safety.

This page also contains links to the University Meetings and their minutes.

Note: By virtue of the University's statutes (specifically XII and XIII), members of staff are obliged to comply with the statement and associated documents, and disciplinary action is possible in cases where these are breached.
