A Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to the School of Physics & Astronomy Health & Safety website.

As Head of School one of my primary duties is to ensure the health and safety of everyone within the School of Physics & Astronomy. We are all responsible for our personal safety and for the safety of our colleagues, students and visitors. Everyone should:

  1. be aware of potential hazards and act to eliminate, manage or avoid them
  2. be familiar with our safety policies and guidelines
  3. observe safe working procedures.

The School Health & Safety team is ready to provide any advice, help or support that you may require. Remember, we can all contribute to making the School of Physics & Astronomy a safe working environment.


Professor Arthur Trew, Head of School
