Information for Colleagues
Our university campuses are currently closed, and most colleagues are working remotely. A small number of colleagues are working on campus to ensure it is safe and to complete essential maintenance. These colleagues are working in a safe environment and health and safety risk assessments have been completed for their specific work demands.
We are planning for more colleagues to return to campus at the start of the next academic year, and numbers may increase over time. However, most of us will continue to work remotely or flexibly for most of the time.
We need to be able to work safely and effectively. Whether you work remotely or flexibly, or on campus, the health and safety of our students, colleagues and the community in which we are based is our key priority.
The information for colleagues on this page brings together all the practicalities that need to be considered as we prepare for re-opening the campus.
The key principles for a successful return to campus are:
- Social distancing on campus – using the 2 metre rule
- Colleagues continuing to work remotely
- Risk assessments
- Cleaning and hygiene
- Adherence to Government and NHS guidance on return to work and self-isolation
Further information on all these principles can be found on this page.
Please read the information carefully and if you do have questions, please raise them with your line manager in the first instance.
