Safety

Ultimate responsibility for safety at the university lies with the Vice-Chancellor, who in turn delegates duties, powers and responsibilities.

Deans have overall responsibility for safety within their area.

Heads of departments and office managers are responsible for risk management and safety at their respective departments and offices. It is the responsibility of each department and office to protect themselves from harm by performing risk analyses and carrying out preventive measures, which are financed by the department.

Staff and students must actively work to increase safety, for example by reporting faults and deficiencies to their line manager or to the Safety Officer.

The Safety Officer must assist the departments and offices in their work on analyses, action plans and implementation by providing instructions, guidelines and training programmes, for example. The Safety Officer can be found in the Building Office.
