HEALTH + SAFETY

NAME
HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELLBEING

KEY CONCEPTS
TBC

REMEMBER
ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP WHEN IN DOUBT

Maintaining the health, safety and well-being (HS+W) of students and staff in the Lab is our number one priority. HS+W is important in every workplace, but especially so where as in the Lab there are many potentially hazardous tools and materials. We work closely with colleagues from the University Health, Safety and Well-being team to ensure that everything is made as safe as it can be. We cannot eliminate risk, but we do everything we can to think through the potential hazards you and the staff might come across while working in the Lab, and implement the most rigorous control measures we can to protect you.

We can though only help you as long as you work with us, and you must also work within the control measures we have in place. It is essential that at all times you follow the guidelines and working practices we have developed over the years to keep you safe and in good health. We try not to labour the rules, but anything procedural we respectfully ask you to do, must be followed without question as a condition of working in the Lab.

There is much to learn about Health + Safety. Not least what the term means! Unless you’ve been trained specifically in H+S, it’s probably not what you think it is. We’re currently developing a guide to key concepts in health and safety as well as a complete list of all the Lab policies and safety related procedures. Do come back this summer to learn more.
