"It is our objective to acheive and maintain health and safety standards which comply with legal requirements and may match or lead national best practice as a result of the application of proportionate risk controls......." Extract from the University Health and Safety Policy

The University Health and Safety Service sets out generic arrangements for managing health and safety which are implemented locally by each Department and College. Departments and Colleges supplement this by adding their own specific arrangements to ensure that risks are fully controlled.
