ESS Health and Safety Manual

The Health and Safety of all ESS staff and service users is of paramount importance.  All of us play a role in ensuring we have a safe working environment, however there are a number of staff with specific roles and responsibilties.

The ESS Health and Safety Manual sets out these roles and responsibilites.  The Manual is made up of a number of documents, some of which will only be relevant to staff who work in either the One Elmwood Student Centre or the Graduate School.

In order to make individual staff members' understanding more manageable, the manual has been set out in three sections:

Part 1 Health and Safety Policy

Part 2 Roles and Responsibilities

Part 3 University Health and Safety arrangements

The links to these documents are provided below.  Please ensure that you acquaint yourself with these health and safety arrangements and ensure that you are aware of your responsibility within them.

The Health and Safety Co-ordinators for the Directorate are Stephen Browne and Scott Annette. Please contact them if you have any queries about Health and Safety within the Directorate.
