It is the policy of the University to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its staff-members as far as possible. The University also accepts its responsibility for visitors to its premises and other sites under its control, and to all those who may be affected by its work activities. The University will take all necessary steps to ensure that its legal duties (relating to health and safety legislation) are met at all times.
In addition to the above, all members of staff have a duty to take reasonable care of their own health and safety; also the health and safety of others who may be affected by their work activities. They are required to follow all relevant procedures, codes of practice and guidelines and report to management any matter likely to present a danger to health and safety. See also CoT Bylaws, Article 25 (E). Each new member of staff will be acquainted with this policy statement during induction (see 8.4 below). He/she will be informed of the Council's organization and arrangements for health and safety management.
The successful implementation of this policy requires the cooperation and commitment of everyone within the University.
The College’s health and safety procedures are set out in the Quality Sub-Manual for Laboratories and Workshops and H&S Policy.
Note: For further detailed procedures related to H&S refer to “Health and Safety Policy”
