A message from the Executive Dean
As our Health, Safety & Wellbeing Team continue to deliver the Enforceable Undertaking presentations, I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the importance of being responsible for our own health and safety and supporting a safe working environment.
We each have a responsibility to take action when we see the potential for a dangerous or unsafe situation in our workplaces. We can meet this responsibility by:
- Stopping what we’re doing
- Determining what action needs to be taken to make the situation safe; for example, can we safely eliminate the risk or the hazard or do we need further advice?
- Not continuing our activity until it is safe to do so
- Reporting the issue using the UniSafe app
Remember that anytime you see something that you think is not safe, please report it. It’s not about blame; the aim is to make it as easy as possible for us to identify and fix unsafe environments before they become a significant risk to ourselves and our colleagues.
