Health and safety department contacts (HSLO / DHSO / DSE facilitators)

HSLOs and DHSOs

The Health and Safety PolicyThe Health and Safety PolicyThe Health and Safety Policy requires Heads of Department to appoint a Departmental Health and Safety Officer (DHSO) or Health and Safety Liaison Officer (HSLO) to advise and/or support them on health and safety related matters. They provide advice for staff on departmental health and safety procedures and can direct to specialist technical advice. DHSOs would generally be required in larger departments or those with higher or more complex risks.

Most departments and sections have a HSLO or DHSO. Some also have HSLOs for centres, units or teams within a department. If your department does not have a HSLO or DHSO, contact your Head of Department directly.
