The University recognises the importance of providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment within which all can teach, study, research and pursue the University's other business interests. This is achieved by compliance with the numerous health and safety regulations and through a positive culture by our staff whose actions greatly assist in maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
The University works to promote this positive health and safety culture through:
- provision of information, guidance, training and support;
- a practical assessment and management of risk;
- an active consultative process with staff and students;
- competent professional advice;
- pro-active and reactive monitoring.
Details of how the University will meet its commitment are outlined within the Health and Safety Policy (PDF, 1MB).
The overall responsibility for ensuring implementation of the policy lies with Coventry University Board of Governors and the Vice-Chancellor.
The University Safety Office provides appropriate and effective advice to enable the management of health and safety across the University’s wide spectrum of activities.
The Safety Office portal pages for staff and students (restricted access) contain further health and safety information, guidance, codes of practice and arrangements.
