Health, Safety and Wellbeing


For workshops by the Occupational Health and Health & Safety contact Christine Osborne, extension 33566 or email

Every member of staff at every level has legal duties in the area of occupational health and safety. The training programmes provided by the Unit are designed to support staff in meeting their legal duties and in fostering a health and safety culture across the University. Departments may identify specific training needs as a result of carrying out risk assessments.

Further information on the support available can be found in Health & Safety and Occupational Health Web pages.
