Health & Safety Committees - Introduction

The University recognises the importance of consulting its staff on health & safety matters to create and maintain a safe and healthy work, study and research environment. Health and Safety Committees are forums for co-operation, communication and consultation between the University, its staff and the trade unions. They are where the University gives information, whilst listening and taking account of staff views, before making health & safety decisions. They also help to make staff aware of health and safety with the ultimate aim of reducing numbers of workplace accidents and work-related illnesses.
