A suite of documents which sit alongside the University Health and Safety Policy and provide detailed information on what you need to do to meet both legal and University requirements for different health and safety topics (e.g. fire safety, biological substances, fieldwork etc).

We would always recommend that noticeboards are used, but if you are going to affix materials to a wall please remember:

• Don’t use blu-tack, tape, drawing pins etc. on any surfaces suspected to contain asbestos. These can include; textured coatings (artex); cement panels; insulating board panels (ie. access panels to risers) etc. Attaching and removing tape, tack or pins can disturb any asbestos which may be present either within or below the surface.

If in doubt about a wall coating, please contact the Asbestos Management Team on asbestos@leeds.ac.uk or 0113 343 5994 (x35994).
