While working on campus, health and safety guidance must be followed at all times, this is unaffected by the situation caused by COVID-19:
- Always follow safe working procedures, current processes, and health and safety guidance for your role.
- To find relevant safe working procedures speak to your manager or member of the HSE team.
- If you encounter a situation that appears to have an elevated risk of contact with COVID-19, leave the area immediately and contact your supervisor for assistance.
- If your staff member reports an elevated risk to you, please contact email@example.com for next steps.
Infection Control Consultations
Members of the Health, Safety & Environment and the Campus Health team are available to provide safe working consultations, either in person or online, and help to develop COVID-19 safety plans. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request support.
It’s always important to ensure you are working safely, whether on campus or remotely.
