Accident reporting at the University: do you know how?

21 Sep 2015

All staff, students and their representatives are obliged to report accidents under the University’s Health and Safety Policy Statement 2013/14

Staff and students at the University carry out an extremely wide range of activities, some of which involve risks that are new, or unpredictable, or just different!

It is the policy of the University to pursue high standards of health and safety management but, as with any other organisation, no matter what safeguards are in place, accidents do still unfortunately happen. What then becomes important is how to report those accidents, no matter how minor, to ensure that steps can be taken to prevent another similar incident.
