Our History

A central health and safety service in various forms and providing various functions has existed at the University for many decades. Historically, the safety, radiological, animal and health functions were separate and led by individuals with various reporting lines. Most of these functions have been brought together in what we have today; a Health and Safety professional team within Governance and Compliance, Corporate Services; a service complemented by specialists within other Colleges and Professional Services.

The health and safety team (and Governance and Compliance as a whole) seek to always be pro-active, providing practical support service to help and advise on all aspects of health and safety, be these occupational or not.
