Safe Working Overview

Under the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, the Department of Engineering must ensure the health and safety of all our staff, students, visitors, members of the public, children and contractors who we engage with during the course of our business. This includes casual workers, volunteers, part-timers, trainees and sub-contractors and our neighbours who could possibly be affected by our activities.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which were introduced under the Health and Safety at Work Act, require that; "Every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst at work; and the risks to health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of or in connection with the conduct by him of his undertaking" (see the accompanying Risk Assessment Procedure).
