Health and Safety

The Division of Medicine senior management is committed to promote, through active management of its hazards and activities, the safety, the health and welfare of all its staff, students, visitors, contractors and members of the public on the Division's premises and to protect them from any adverse effect on their health and safety arising from the activities of the Division.

We seek continual improvement of our safety systems through processes of measurement and review, in order to achieve or maintain best practice standards. The Safety Team provides safety advice to all staff, students and visitors on health and safety issues and works to maintain high safety and operational standards.

The following sections are a condensed version of certain topics in the Safety Handbook, to address the most common safety questions. Use the links below to find out more about our polices and be part of creating a safe work environment.
