School of Engineering is committed to the achievement of excellence in our research and teaching activities. Accidents are disruptive, they consume resources which could be put to better use, and they can hinder the achievement of our objectives as well as threaten the well-being of staff and students. Our commitment to excellence therefore includes a commitment to the effective management of health and safety.
Our systems and procedures can always be improved and any student or member of staff who has suggestions for making our health and safety arrangements more effective is encouraged to contact the School Safety Adviser with his or her ideas.
