About the Faculty of Health, Sport and Science

Accommodation & Facilities
The Faculty is based in purpose built accommodation at the University’s Glyntaff campus, at the
Glamorgan Sport Park at Treforest Industrial Estate, and, for Chiropractic students at the
Chiropractic Clinic based in Treforest.

The accommodation includes teaching rooms for lecture and tutorial groups and is
complemented by well-equipped laboratories, physiological suites and the state of the art
Glamorgan Clinical Simulation Suite. The Department of Science and Sport is based at Upper
Glyntaff where a £15 million investment saw the opening of new science laboratories in
September 2009.

Academic Management
The Faculty is managed by a Dean, an Associate Dean, a Head of Administration, a Head of
Learning, Teaching & the Student Experience, a Head of International Development and a Head
of Research.

Academic structures are managed via three Departments, each with a Head of Department and
Associate Head with responsibility for subject areas as detailed later in the document.

The Course (or Award) Leader is the immediate manager responsible for the quality of
programmes. Courses are managed via the Divisional Heads listed in this handbook.

Administration
Administration is structured into several Divisions including Resources, Quality Assurance,
Student Support, Student Administration, Planning & Performance and Research.

Award Portfolios
The Faculty has about 5000 students located at the University of Glamorgan, and another 300 at
Partner Colleges undertaking a wide range of programmes at both undergraduate and
postgraduate levels. In addition to this the Faculty has four Foundation Years which recruit to
named Awards.
Undergraduate Provision
The undergraduate portfolio has a diverse mix of courses in the fields of health, sport and
science. Many programmes in the Departments of Care Sciences and Professional Education lead
to professional registration as a nurse, midwife, social worker or chiropractor. The Department
of Science & Sport delivers a large number of single honours programmes across four major
cognate areas - Biological Sciences; Chemistry and Forensic Science; Earth, Space and
Environment; and Health & Exercise Science as well as some major/minor and joint options.

A large number of part-time awards are also offered by the Faculty, many of them tailored to the
continual professional development needs of the health and social care sector.

The Faculty also offers awards at Franchise Colleges in Wales. These focus on a number of areas
such as sports science, childhood studies, and health and social care.

Postgraduate Provision
The Faculty offers a variety of taught postgraduate courses ranging from postgraduate
certificates/diplomas through Masters programmes to taught and research doctorates. Many of
these are suitable for professionals pursuing continual professional development. There is more
information about the Faculty’s research activities below.

Research
The Faculty of Health, Sport and Science is committed to ensuring that research is placed at the
heart of our academic environment; valued in its own right and for the richness it brings to
education and professional practice for the whole range of disciplines spanned by the Faculty.
Over the past few years activities in this area have expanded greatly and the faculty now has a
significant portfolio of research of both completed and ongoing research. The Faculty is
fortunate in being able to build on close links with industry, with NHS Trusts, Health Authorities,
Professional Bodies, policy makers and others, to undertake research which is of characterised by
its enthusiasm, innovation and quality. We have established a reputation for using new
methodological approaches and for tackling subjects ‘at the edge’, such as the extremes of
physical tolerance and the care and wellbeing of those often marginalised in society. The Faculty
has a successful record of obtaining external research funds from bodies including Government,
professional and voluntary bodies and encourages collaboration through a variety of
arrangements such as secondments of individuals to the faculty and shared funding of projects.
By doing so the Faculty is able to assist others to develop and follow through their research ideas,
including attracting research funding.

The Faculty offers students a challenging and enjoyable course of study through research for both
MPhil and PhD degrees. In addition to offering the traditional route to these qualifications, in
which the student undertakes a piece of research as a basis for a thesis, other routes are also
offered via the submission of a portfolio of work, or of a body of publications. The portfolio
allows students to gain an MPhil or PhD by submitting evidence about ways in which they have
contributed to the development of new knowledge. Students undertaking a MPhil or PhD are
allocated supervisors who facilitate their work. In addition they are offered the opportunity to
spend time working collaboratively.

                 HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY STATEMENT


This document is the Health and Safety Policy of the Faculty of Health, Sport and Science. It
has been established and developed to the requirements of the University and in accordance
with current legal requirements.


The policy has been refined over a period of time and also reflects current good practice in the
areas for which the Faculty is responsible. All staff and students working within the Faculty of
Health, Sport and Science have a legal and moral duty to ensure that the Faculty and its
departments are as safe and healthy a working environment as is reasonably practicable.


The responsibility for the maintenance of the responsibilities specified laid down rests with the
Dean of Faculty. Through the training programmes in Health and Safety embedded in the
Health and Safety Management Plan of the Faculty, constructed and reviewed annually, the
intentions of this Policy Statement are embedded in the culture and activities of the Faculty.



The policy document has three defined sections:


A:     Statement of Intent

B:     Organisation

C:     Planning and Implementation


The policy also takes account of Performance Measurement and Review.




                                                                                                  26

                           HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY



A.      Statement of Intent

The Faculty of Health, Sport and Science will achieve and maintain the highest possible
standards of Health and Safety throughout its organisation and is committed to progressive
improvement in its Health and Safety performance. A successful Health and Safety culture is
seen as a Key Success Factor, as well as being fundamental to the future well being of the
Faculty, and will be given a high level of priority at all times.

Successful Health and Safety Management establishes responsibilities and relationships which
promote a positive Health and Safety Environment throughout the Faculty. This requires the
involvement and participation of all staff at all levels, combined with visible and active
leadership from the Faculty Executive.


The Faculty of Health, Sport and Science will:

1 Ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of all staff, students and
  others for whom the Faculty is responsible;
2    Ensure that all work undertaken by the above will be carried out in such a way that the
     health and safety of others is not at risk;

3    Promote a positive health and safety culture throughout the Faculty and its departments,
     based on the 4 C’s of Competence, Control, Co-operation and Communication;

4    Ensure that the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, other
     health and safety legislation and relevant “Approved Codes of Practice” are applied
     throughout the Faculty.

5 Value the contributions made by all staff and students in identifying and controlling hazards
   and their associated risks.

This will be achieved by ensuring that staff are provided at all times with:

1    Premises, plant, equipment and systems of work that are safe and do not engender risks to
     health;

2    Appropriate facilities, equipment and clothing for the safe storage, handling, use, transport
     and disposal of substances, equipment and other articles;
                                                                                                  27

3   Information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the health and
    safety of all staff, students and visitors to the Faculty and its satellites;

4   Adequate welfare facilities (as defined by the Welfare at Work regulations 1992).

B. Organisation

i    Introduction

     The Dean of Faculty is responsible to the Vice-Chancellor (or such other person nominated
     by the Vice-Chancellor) for the detailed adoption, in her area of control, of the Health and
     Safety Policy of the University. In discharging this responsibility, the Dean, (Professor D
     Mead), is assisted by the Deputy Dean (Dr Rh Lewis).

     The responsibility of the Faculty towards its staff, visitors and students applies both on-
     campus and off-campus (for example, during student field trips).

     The Faculty Health and Safety Officer is Mr R D Price. The Faculty Health and Safety
     Officer is responsible to the Dean and Deputy Dean for the day-to-day co-ordination of the
     Health and Safety organization and for specialist advice on Health and Safety matters. In
     those physical areas which are shared with other Faculties or Departments of the
     University (e.g. HASS or Estates) the Dean of each Faculty or the Head of Support
     Department is responsible for the respective actions of his/her staff, and students.

     The Faculty of Health, Sport and Science is located on Upper and Lower Glyntaff Campus
     with satellites in other locations including Glamorgan Sport Park and Baglan Bay.

ii   Safety Managers

     (I)     Safety managers have two levels of responsibility, Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1
             Safety Managers will normally be Heads of Department from the Faculty.

     (II)    The two Level 1 Safety Managers within the Faculty are Dr Chris Lee and Dr
             Linda Evans (Appendix 1). Dr Lee assumes overall operational responsibility for
             health and safety on the Upper Glyntaff, Glamorgan Sport Park and Baglan Bay
             site. Dr Evans assumes overall operational responsibility for health and safety on
             the Lower Glyntaff campus and Chiropractic Clinic. L1 Safety Managers are
             responsible for academic, administrative and technical areas.

     (III)   All risk assessments will be signed by the two Level 1 Safety Managers or their
             nominees, but in all cases by an appointee who is an Associate Head of Department
             or above.

     (IV)    Level 2 Safety Managers are nominated individuals with responsibility for
             designated parts of each campus, known as safety zones (Appendix 2). These
             areas have largely been allocated on the basis of the academic, administrative
             departments and divisions that operate within the Faculty.




                                                                                                 29

iii   Off campus responsibility

      Off-campus responsibilities are also exercised through the two Level One Safety Managers
      and the Level 2 Safety Managers drawn from the academic and administrative divisions.
      For example, student field trips in ecology are the responsibility of a L2 Safety Manager
      (who is also the Head of the Biology Division working) working with the lecturers who
      assess or supervise the trips and the research complex at Baglan Bay is the responsibility of
      a dedicated L2 Safety Manager. The appropriate National Health Trust is responsible for
      the health and safety of students while they are on placement. Non-NHS placement areas
      for Health & Social Care students are audited and vicarious liability schedules arranged
      before placements commence.

iv Health and Safety Meetings

(I) A Faculty Health & Safety Committee (SAFE COM1) and two Departmental Health &
    Safety Committees (SAFE COM2 and SAFE COM 3) have been established, the
    membership of which is shown within Appendix 3. Important information on H & S may
    also be disseminated more widely by email.

(II) To further advise the Faculty and Departmental Safety Officers, two Health & Safety
     Consultative Committees have been established. Membership of the Consultative
     Committee includes First Aiders and Fire Wardens who are also listed within Appendix 2.

(III) For the purposes of Health and Safety management, technical and administrative staff
      report directly to the relevant Level 1 and Level 2 Safety Managers according to the safety
      zone in which they work.

v     Day to day implementation of the Faculty’s Health and Safety Policy

      The day-to-day implementation of the Faculty’s Health and Safety Policy will include:

         Regular meetings of SAFECOM1 (at least once a term);

         Health and Safety considerations and the minutes of SAFECOM1 to be included as
          standing agenda items for the Faculty Executive;

         Regular meetings of SAFECOM2, SAFECOM3 and of the Consultative Health and
          Safety Committees;

         Regular discussions between the Dean or Deputy Dean, L1 and L2 Safety Managers and
          Head of Departments and the Faculty and Departmental Health and Safety Officers.

         Twice yearly (November and March) inspections of the Faculty by the Faculty and
          relevant departmental Health and Safety Officer, the Level 1 Safety Manager, Principal
          Technical Officer (as appropriate) and Level 2 Safety Managers, as established in the
          Code of Practice (1997) of the University Health and Safety Policy. The inspection
          reports will be collated by the Faculty Health & Safety Officer and considered by the

                                                                                                  30

        meeting of the Faculty and Departmental Health and Safety Committee immediately
        following each inspection.

        Safety Inspections are organized into two phases. In the first phase, the Faculty and
        Departmental Health and Safety Officers inspect safety zones with the appropriate Level
        2 Safety Manager. An Action Plan is prepared with deadlines for implementation. In
        phase 2, 4-6 weeks after the first inspection, a repeat inspection takes place with the
        Level 1 Safety Manager present. Reports from both inspections, and any action plans,
        are reported to SAFE COM2 or SAFE COM3. Summary reports and matters that remain
        outstanding, are fed through to SAFE COM1: minutes of SAFE COM1 are reported to
        Faculty Executive.

       Special or ‘spot’ Inspections of the Faculty by the Faculty or Departmental Health and
        Safety Officer and relevant Safety Managers.

       Drawing up a Health and Safety Management Plan on an annual basis and prioritizing
        the described activities;

       Regular auditing of safety management procedures followed by any necessary revision
        of procedures;

       Regular Health and Safety awareness sessions for staff, as appropriate to their role
        within the Faculty and Departments;

       Induction programmes on Health and Safety for new staff and new students, as
        appropriate each academic year.

Responsibilities of the Dean

In addition to the arrangements established above the Dean will:

1   Ensure that staff are familiar with the University’s Health and Safety Policy and other
    specific Health and Safety policies, schemes and procedures. The principal vehicles for
    this will be the Staff Handbook, the availability of relevant committee minutes on the
    Faculty server and e-mail alerts from Faculty or Departmental level.

2   Define and implement health and safety arrangements appropriate to the needs of the
    Faculty.

3   Prepare an annual report to be submitted to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor which will
    indicate how the Faculty is performing in relation to the annual Health and Safety Plan.

4   Ensure all significant hazards are the subject of a suitable and sufficient risk assessment
    and that subsequently steps are taken to eliminate, reduce or control that risk.

5   Ensure that staff members, students and others in the Faculty maintain safe working
    standards and observe all safety rules.

                                                                                                31

6    Ensure that all staff members and others are familiar with emergency procedures.

7    Investigate with the assistance of the Faculty Health and Safety Officer or other staff,
     accidents/incidents in their area of responsibility, establish the direct and indirect cause(s)
     and where necessary take action to prevent a recurrence.

8    Ensure the provision and maintenance (including storage) of suitable personal protective
     equipment to staff members and students, who may be exposed to any risk whilst at work
     and that the equipment is used or worn as defined.

9    Take appropriate steps to prevent unauthorised persons from entering defined prohibited
     areas.

10 Ensure that all reasonable precautions are taken by those staff who have responsibility for
   research activities, so that research students carry out their work without endangering
   themselves or others.

11 Ensure that statutory controlled equipment and plant have been tested by the appropriate
   organisation and are being used in accordance with the relevant regulations and that no
   plant, equipment or process causes pollution.

12 Consult with the Head of Development and Space Section, Estates and Facilities
   Department and the University’s Health and Safety Officer when planning alterations to
   the fabric of the building or change of use.

13    Make available funds for the support of Health and Safety , including training, as may be
     reasonably expected to deliver this policy on behalf of the Faculty, its students and its staff.

14 Ensure that the Vice-Chancellor or his nominee is advised of any matter found to be in
   breach of statutory requirements which cannot be effectively dealt with at Faculty level.

The Deputy Dean will assist the Dean in the monitoring and exercise of these responsibilities.

Safety Managers’ Responsibilities
Level Two Safety Managers fall into two main categories:

(i) Heads of Division, with overall responsibility for specialist facilities (e.g. laboratories)
within their designated zone.

(ii) Administrators with responsibility for offices or reception areas to which students or
members of the public have access.

Level One and Level Two Safety Managers are responsible to the Dean and DeputyDean for the detailed adoption
of the University’s Health and Safety Policy in the areas and safety zones under their jurisdiction. They will assist
the Dean and Deputy Dean in achieving the objectives of the Policy by ensuring that:




                                                                                                                  32
                                                                 Health and Safety Policy Last updated 30.08.12
1   They, together with the staff for whom they are responsible, know and understand their
    responsibilities under the Health and Safety Policy and other specific Health and Safety
    Policies, schemes and procedures. (Training will be provided for this purpose).

2   The staff are adequately trained in Health and Safety matters to perform the tasks required
    and are made fully aware of all known hazards which exist.

3   Working with the Faculty Health and Safety Officer, new staff (and, where appropriate,
    new students in their jurisdiction) requiring H & S induction are identified and trained
    appropriately.

4   Staff are made fully aware of all emergency procedures.

5   At all times a safe and healthy environment is maintained and that all work is carried out in
    accordance with appropriate statutory regulations and codes of practice (which are
    regarded as the absolute minimum standard). Performance will be monitored through
    safety inspections for all safety zones within the Faculty.

6   All necessary equipment, plant and tools are in safe condition and that safe access to and
    egress from places of work are always maintained.

7   Accidents occurring within their areas are reported on the appropriate form, investigated in
    conjunction with the Faculty and/or Departmental Health and Safety Officer and (where
    applicable) remedial action is taken to prevent a recurrence.

8   Defective equipment is reported and taken out of use until repaired or replaced.

9   High standards of housekeeping are maintained in safety zones.

10 Fire escape doors and alarm points in their areas are at all times kept clear of obstruction
   and that escape doors can be readily opened from the inside.

11 Suitable personal protective equipment (as required by the relevant risk assessment) is
   issued and used by staff and others where necessary.

12 All personal protective equipment is stored and maintained in accordance with appropriate
   standards.

13 Any matter brought to their attention by a safety representative or other member of staff is
   dealt with promptly and effectively and, where appropriate, formally referred to the Level
   1 Safety Manager.

14 Highly flammable liquids, liquefied petroleum gases and petroleum spirits are stored,
   issued and used in accordance with relevant legislation and codes of practice.

15 All substances are stored, handled, transported and disposed of in accordance with the
   relevant legislation and codes of practice.


                                                                                                33

       16 The Dean’s attention is drawn to any breach of statutory regulations or unsafe practices
          which cannot be dealt with effectively by the Safety Manager.

       17 Health and Safety Assessments are reviewed/ renewed periodically and such assessments
          are stored centrally in a readily accessible form.

       18 The need for re-organised (or additional) safety zones is reviewed periodically and any
          suggested changes reported to SAFECOM2 or SAFECOM3.

       Level One Safety Managers only

       19 There are Level Two Safety Managers for all safety zones.

       Responsibilities of Award Leaders

       Award Leaders have a specific responsibility for the screening of new students to ensure that
       they have practical appropriate experience. (For example, see ‘Safe Start’, below).

                                                 SAFE START
'Safe Start' is the name for the screening process for new students in laboratory sciences. Rather than
       formally risk assess every laboratory activity ('activity-based risk assessment'), the Faculty
       satisfies itself that all first-year students are already experienced in working in the laboratory at
       an elementary level and so are able to work in university labs under supervision. SAFE START
       is an assessment of general student competence in the laboratory as evidenced for example, by
       the successful completion of previous courses which involve a nationally agreed level of
       practical work. This allows the Faculty to make certain sensible assumptions about a starting
       point for laboratory work for new students at the University. Students in 'potentially at-risk'
       categories, including those who have not previously studied at A-level or mature students with
       limited laboratory experience, are given extra guidance before starting practical work.


       Responsibilities of all employees and students:

       Every employee and student within the Faculty has a responsibility to:



          1. Take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and other persons who may
             be affected by their acts or omissions.
          2. Co-operate with the University to enable it to comply with any relevant statutory
             provisions.
          3. Not to interfere with or misuse equipment provided for safety purposes.
          4. To co-operate with the University in the use of any control measures and Personal
             Protective Equipment as may be required to be worn as a result of a risk assessment.




                                                                                                                  34
                                                                       Health and Safety Policy Last updated 30.08.12
5. Observe all instructions, whether written or verbal, given to ensure personal safety and
   safety of others.

6. Be sensibly and safely dressed for their particular working conditions.

7. Conduct themselves at all times in an orderly manner in the workplace and refrain from
   any horseplay.

8. Use all safety equipment and/or protective clothing as instructed, reporting any loss or
   defect to their Line Manager.

9. Avoid improvisation in any form which could create unnecessary risks to health and
   safety.

10. Maintain equipment and tools in good condition, reporting any defects to their Line
    Managers.

11. Acquaint themselves with all equipment, processes, materials and substances used by
    them and draw attention to any processes, materials or substances they are not trained to
    use.

12. Ensure their working environment is well maintained and safe eg, putting materials
    away, storing them correctly and exercising good housekeeping practice.

13. Report any hazard or malfunction to their Line Manager, L1 or L2 Safety Manager or
    Supervisor, taking such immediate actions as appropriate and commensurate with the
    circumstances: serious Health and Safety concerns must be reported immediately.

14. Report all accidents to their Line Manager and L1 or L2 Safety Manager, and/or their
    supervisor, whether injury is sustained or not.

15. Be familiar with the emergency evacuation procedure and the location of fire alarm
    points and emergency equipment.

16. Review their individual performance with respect to Health and Safety at their annual
    appraisal, research student review or staff development interview.

17. Attend appropriate Health and Safety Training courses arising out of the
    appraisal/review/staff development interview process or which are deemed advisable as a
    result of changes in working practices or legislation.

18. Advise Health and Safety Officers and their supervisors of their Health & Safety
    Training needs.

19. Carry out risk assessments as appropriate, retaining copies of such assessments for future
    examination and review.



                                                                                              35

  20. Seek advice and guidance upon any safety related matter upon beyond their experience
      or immediate line responsibility.

  21. Set a good example, in relation to Health and Safety matters, to colleagues and students.

Responsibilities of supervisory staff: principal investigators

   1. The term ‘principal investigator’ (PI) is used to mean the supervisor of any group of
      staff, students or visitors e.g. senior research and laboratory staff and consultancy or
      project leaders. Although the obligations of PIs are in principle no different from that of
      other staff, their obligations under H & S are often complicated due to:

   2. The nature of the projects they supervise(which are often novel and which may involve
      flammable liquids etc)

   3. The use of temporary or fixed-term personel.

   4. The requirement that individuals work independently, often out of hours.

   5. Principal investigators are responsible for the duties and operations carried out by their
      staff or students i.e. for individuals who are assigned to them (either formally or
      informally) or who are effectively adopted by them (e.g. visitors). Such responsibilities
      include the identification of hazards and the education of staff under their care e.g. clear
      guidelines on when, where and if they are allowed to work and also how they must
      work. The PI’s responsibilities also extend to the working environment itself – for the
      conditions and equipment in rooms and areas under their control or in which they work.

   6. The following are examples which illustrate their duties, but the list is not exhaustive.

   7. Dr’W’ notices that the ‘sharps’ box is overflowing and delegates this to one of her
      researchers, who liaises with the technical services manager. Dr ‘W’ follows this up
      and would, if required, pursue this herself with departmental management if required.

   8. Dr ‘X’ has a new research student. They will be using liquid nitrogen and carbon
      monoxide. She ensures that no experimental work commences until the student is (a)
      provided with the appropriate protection (gloves and goggles) ; (b) that they have
      practised the appropriate techniques under supervision and (c) that they have attended
      the appropriate training courses.

   9. Dr ‘Y’ employs a post-doctoral worker to work on a high voltage flash photolysis
      system which requires experimentation at night so as to reduce detector interference
      from passing vehicles. Dr ‘Y’ establishes that the worker is unfamiliar with the
      photolysis system and the University regulations on lone-workers. The worker is
      forbidden to work until these deficiencies are resolved.

   10. Dr ‘Z’ works with a seconded colleague from another University (Dr ‘P’) on a project
       which involves the withdrawal of blood samples from volunteers. Dr ‘P’ sends ‘Dr Z’
       the Faculty H & S Policy by e-mail becoming coming to the University. In planning the

                                                                                                  36
                                                      Health and Safety Policy Last updated 30.08.12
        project and following discussions, Dr ‘Z’ establishes that the colleague has carried out
        identical procedures in his own university and has carried out similar risk assessments
        before. Accordingly, a truncated laboratory induction is sufficient.

    11. The above examples have a common theme: it is the principal investigators
        responsibilities to ensure that new staff are adequately trained and prepared for work
        and that they receive detailed guidance on university, faculty and laboratory safety
        matters. Until these responsibilities are discharged, the principal investigator should not
        allow their staff to start a project. But the responsibilities of the PI do not end once the
        project starts: they are obliged to remain actively involved in ensuring that appropriate
        safety practices are followed and adhered to. In other words, they must be proactive
        safety conscious supervisors in and out of the laboratory.

    12. For the purposes of this policy, research assistants should be treated as research students
        when it comes to induction, supervision and training.

Responsibilities of Health and Safety Officers

                                                                                                          37
                                                               Health and Safety Policy Last updated 30.08.12
10 Meet and liaise with L1 and L2 safety managers periodically, as required, outside of formal
   meetings in order to identify concerns and needs.

In addition, the Faculty Health and Safety Officer will:

11 Undertake regular Health and Safety inspection of the Faculty and participate in (and

   may be zoned, and ensure that records of the Safety Zone Inspections and actions are kept
   up to date and circulated as appropriate.

17 Maintain and update the content of the Faculty Health & Safety Shared Drive.

18 Maintain an up to date list of safety-related personnel including fire wardens, first aiders
   and Level Two Safety Managers.




                                                                                                  38

C. Planning and Implementation
1   The Faculty Safety Officer is responsible for the production and updating of a Health &
    Safety Handbook (Staff) and a Health & Safety Handbook (Students). These handbooks
    are issued to all staff and students registered within the Faculty. These handbooks address
    aspects of the procedures adopted in the event of an emergency, and cover the policy of
    safe working in the Faculty and laboratory environment. Copies of the Safety Handbooks
    are held in the Faculty.

    The Faculty Safety Officer will provide an electronic version of both handbooks on shared
    drive. Safety Booklets will be presented to SAFE COM1, SAFE COM2 and SAFE COM3
    for comment and annual review.

2   The Faculty Health and Safety Officer, aided by Departmental Safety Officers as
    appropriate, will conduct a Health and Safety Induction programme, at the start of each
    academic year, for all new students joining the Faculty. All new staff joining the Faculty
    will undergo a Health and Safety induction at the first possible opportunity.

    The Faculty Health and Safety Officer, aided by Departmental Health and Safety Officers,
    L1 and L2 Safety Managers and the appropriate line managers, will identify the names of
    all new permanent, temporary or research staff and students that require a Health & Safety
    induction.

3   Staff are required to carry out assessment on all laboratory work under the following
    headings:

    (i)   Risk Assessment Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1992)

          Risk assessments of all work activities will identify any protective or
          preventative measures which may be required in order to minimise
          or eliminate any hazards that have been identified. These measures
          will be reviewed when the relevant risk assessment undergoes its
          periodic review.
          A re-assessment is made whenever the work activity changes e.g. when:

          (a) a new substance is used in the Faculty;
          (b) a substance used changes its identity or format;
          (c) the work activity involving the substance changes.

    Copies of risk assessment forms can be found in the relevant working environment.
    Copies are also held in the Faculties main offices (on both campuses) and by the originator.
    Within the COSHH Policy there is a requirement for the proper storage and disposal of
    waste substances.




                                                                                                39
                                                     Health and Safety Policy Last updated 30.08.12
    (ii) Control of Substances Hazardous to Health

         Risk assessments are carried out on all activities in the Faculty which utilize
         substances or materials deemed to be possibly hazardous to health in accordance with
         the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1999 (COSHH).
         Substances and materials used in the Faculty are monitored and controls introduced
         to protect the health of those at risk where necessary. The COSHH assessment must
         include a library of datasheets of the hazardous substance used in that activity. A
         library of data sheets is maintained of every hazardous substance used in the Faculty
         or its satellites.

    (iii) Dangerous Substances Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR)

         Risk assessments must be undertaken in all activities within the Faculty or its
         satellites which utilize substances deemed flammable, explosive or oxidizing in
         accordance with the DEAR regulations.

4   Other activities within the Faculty which are conducted outside the laboratory environment
    must also be assessed under the appropriate regulations and staff and students conducting
    field work must be provided with the Faculties Fieldwork Health and Safety Booklet. A
    copy of this booklet is held in the Faculty Office.

5   All assessments carried out under 3 & 4 are countersigned by the Level 1 Safety Manager
    or their nominee and reviewed periodically or whenever required by the Level 1 Safety
    Manager. Where the Level 1 Safety Manager does not possess the expertise to approve
    assessments, s/he shall seek appropriate advice from the appropriate Level 2 Safety
    Manager or other specialist or Health & Safety Officer.

6   The Faculty through this Health and Safety Policy, requires that all activities comply to the
    University Codes of Practice and the legislative requirements of the various components of
    the Health and Safety at work.

7   The Faculty will meet all reasonable resource requirements for Health and Safety, where
    the Faculty (as opposed to the University) has responsibility for those Health and Safety
    needs.

8   The Faculty Health and Safety Policy and Inspection Plan is reviewed and up-dated (where
    necessary) annually.

9   The Faculty reviews its performance and its compliance with meeting management plans
    and audit recommendations on an annual basis. In addition, it reports on accident rates and
    lost time rates for the previous academic year.




                                                                                                40

10 On rare occasions, the judgment of risk assessors and of the appropriate Level 1 Safety
   Manager may be such that it is believed that a particular student or member of staff poses a
   significant risk to themselves or others in daily work or in specialized activities (such as
   field trips). In such circumstances, the Level 1 Safety Manager must contact the Dean or
   Deputy Dean without delay. The Dean or Deputy Dean may then either:

    (i)    In the case of imminent risk, take immediate advice from the Directorate and/or
            Student Services or HR concerning the exclusion of the individual from one or
            more activities; or

    (ii)   After consultation with student services or HR, set up such enquiries as are
           necessary to gather the information required to inform future action or investigation
           or to refer matters to other parts of the University.

11 In exceptional circumstances, the senior manager or leader of an expedition or activity who
   believes that a student or staff member poses an imminent risk and who cannot contact the
   Faculty to obtain immediate advice, is authorized to take reasonable and legal action so as
   to protect both the individual, other activity members, the public and the University. Such
   actions must be reported to the Dean or Deputy Dean as soon as communications with the
   University are re-established.

12 The University employee making an assessment of the potential hazards associated with an
   activity, will specify in advance the types of protective clothing that should be worn by
   students. Students who are considered to be inappropriately dressed or protected (e.g.
   whose clothes represent a fire hazard) must comply with the instructions of the supervising
   member of staff in removing the immediate risk from the scene. Further advice should be
   obtained from the appropriate safety officer and safety manager.

13 Research students will complete a form signed by the Director of Studies to state that they
   have undertaken the correct safety training for their study.
