Health and Safety

The LCN is governed by a Health and Safety Policy Statement and a series of supporting LCN-wide Health and Safety Policy Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes. These documents set out our specific duties to ensure compliance with current health and safety legislation and university policy. To promote a positive safety culture within the LCN, we also have a series of stringent Safety Management practices.

Each LCN section or lab also (where necessary) develops operating instructions for each of their functions, ensuring that the requirements of the LCN’s policy and standards are considered, met and implemented where appropriate and necessary.

The Centre requires that the risks of all activities, on and off site, which may affect the health and safety of its staff, students and others are assessed. The risk control measures that are implemented should be what is reasonably practicable in the circumstances and should be regularly monitored and reviewed.
