Internal Emergency Number: 666
Accidents, Incidents & Emergencies
Accidents can and do happen but we can all help to reduce their likelihood and impact by being aware of the hazards around us, understanding the risk they pose and ensuring control measures are implemented.
It is important that all incidents are reported regardless of whether injury has been caused or not as this data can be used to put additional controls in place and help reduce further risk. There is also a legal obligation to report specific incidents to the Health & Safety Executive. A single system has therefore been developed to make this as simple as possible.
Incidents for this purpose include:
Road traffic accidents (on campus or when using University vehicles)
Work related accidents (mishaps)
Slips, trips and falls
Fire (including all alarm activations)
Act of violence (assault)
