Health and Safety

These webpages state the Departmental Policy on Health and Safety and outline responsibilities and arrangements for ensuring your safety.

The policy is provided to help you work safely and avoid accidents by providing a framework within which a safe method of work can be established. It is therefore important that you read the advice given on these web pages or in hard copy (available from the Departmental Safety Officer) at the start of your work in the Department.

Accident prevention is mainly common sense, tidiness and forethought, but safety within laboratories does require constant vigilance and care. Remember that a little planning and thought can save a great deal of trouble and regret. Always seek expert advice when in doubt.
