Reflecting on our achievements for World Day for Safety and Health at Work

26 April 2021

After a year like no other, we have been reflecting on just how much has been achieved by staff across the University of Bristol. To celebrate our collective efforts, we’ve prepared a health and safety snapshot for World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April.

It would be impossible to share everything that’s been done for health and safety at the University within a just few pages, but this snapshot provides a glimpse of:

  • health and safety through the lens of a changing landscape of public health risks and working styles
  • how colleagues have contributed to keeping everyone as safe as possible
  • highlights of recent achievements and continued best practice

Please join us in viewing and sharing our multi-page digital poster to celebrate safety and health at work: Snapshot of safety and health at work.

About World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Created by the International Labour Organization and recognised by the United Nations, the annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally.

This year, the focus of the day centres on addressing outbreaks of infectious disease at work, with a natural spotlight on the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

Changing how you engage with health and safety

There's one more thing Safety and Health Services has been doing over the past year that we'd like to mention: Refreshing a range of health and safety resources.

As part of these efforts, we launched a new, responsive website for Safety and Health Services with improvements to navigation and user experience. Take a look: bristol.ac.uk/safety/

Do you have thoughts on our new website? We’d really appreciate your feedback so we know what we are doing right – and it's even more valuable to know where we can improve. Please send your comments to Tess.
