Campus Safety and Health

The Campus Division Safety and Health Team provides dedicated safety and health advice and support to the Campus Division to ensure that the division complies with University policies, industry standards and applicable UK health and safety legislation.

We work closely with the University's Safety and Health Services team and other relevant departments to ensure consistency.

About us

Our aim is to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and, to safeguard others, principally students, contractors and members of the public who may be exposed to risks arising from our work activities. We work to promote a high standard of safety management by collaboratively engaging with operational teams and other stakeholders, to drive continuous improvement.

What we do

Risk identification and risk assessment

The University undertakes a diverse range of activities involving varying levels of risk. We provide guidance to enable and support these activities, whilst helping Schools and Services carry them out in a safe manner.

University staff can find our risk assessment guide and form on SharePoint.

Information on risk assessments for contractors can be found on our Contrators page.

Accident and incident management

We support Campus Division with accident and incident management. This work includes processing incident reports and assisting with investigations. Staff can learn more about how to report an accident on SharePoint. Contractors should visit the Information for Contractors page.

Audits and inspections

We undertake planned and ad hoc audits of the workplace and work activities and coordinate audits and inspections from external bodies such as the HSE, Avon Fire & Rescue Service.


Health and safety training will be provided for all staff, as part of their induction and subsequently, repeated periodically as part of their mandatory training, in accordance with their departmental Training Matrix.

Other specialist training necessary for staff with specific health and safety responsibilities will be identified through the risk assessment process and staff appraisals. This includes e.g. Fire Warden, First Aider, Legionella and Asbestos Awareness.
