Our University takes the health and safety of staff, students and visitors seriously.
The purpose of the Committee is to create and maintain a safe and healthy work environment by considering issues relating to the health and safety of employees, students and visitors to the University and acting as a forum for management to consult with employees and their recognised trade unions on matters relating to their health and safety. The Committee advises on the development of policies, procedures and regulations which will safeguard the health and safety, welfare and wellbeing of staff, students and visitors to the University, and monitors their implementation. The Committee also monitors statistics on accidents, incidents and sickness and recommends action to address key issues which may arise from these.
The joint Chairs of the Safety, Health and Wellbeing Committee are Professor Paul Smith and Tim Briggs.
The Acting Secretary is Rachael Andrews.
