The University is committed to providing a safe, healthy and supportive work environment for all. The University’s Health and Policy details the responsibilities we all have to look after ourselves and others who may be affected by what we do.
The following student responsibilities are from the policy:
Look after yourself and others
Take care to look after your own health and safety and the safety of others who could be harmed by the things you do on our campuses, or as part of your studies.
Follow safe working practices
Make sure you follow the safe working practices that apply to your studies and life on campus.
You must also follow any instructions given to you by a member of staff for your health and safety.
Learn how to do things safely
Take part in any training which the University, your department or your academic supervisor says is necessary for your health and safety.
Don’t interfere with anything provided for your safety
You put yourself and others at risk if you intentionally interfere with or misuse anything provided for fire or health and safety protection. For this reason the University will treat such behaviour as a disciplinary offence.
Tell us your concerns about health and safety
Tell us if you have concerns about health and safety and get advice if you are not sure how to do things safely.
If you carry out work for the University either under contract of employment (for example Graduate Teaching Assistants) or as part of training for employment (for example Frontrunners) you will be treated as employees. Find out about employee responsibilities in the Health and Safety Policy .
If you need any further help and advice, please contact or visit the Student Services Hub who will be happy to assist you.
