New Partnership Agreement

Partnership Agreement


We are pleased to announce the signing of the new Partnership Agreement, which builds on the original Revitalising Agreement 2007 with the Trade Unions. The Partnership Agreement now sets out the way in which we will work together to embed a strong health and safety culture at the University.

See the Partnership Agreement at the bottom of this page.

Paul Veevers, Director of Health and Safety Services said:

“I am delighted to have signed this unique Agreement between the University and the Trade Unions. It is vital that we all work together to achieve a safe and healthy workplace. The Partnership Agreement is an important element of the support we provide to our staff and students in their teaching, research, work and study . I look forward to working with the campus trade unions to make this a success.”

Nick Creighton, Unison Health and Safety Officer said:

““The Partnership Agreement 2017, builds on the foundations of the Revitalising Agreement which was ground-breaking for its time. By working in true partnership and actively promoting the Agreement we help to change the safety culture so it becomes second nature to all, and equips our staff & students with a good respect for safety when they eventually move on to life away from the University. “
