Health and Safety
Our Policy Statement
The Health and Safety at Work Act provides a legal framework for safety regulations introduced in the workplace. It is the School's policy not only to comply fully with this Act, as required by law, but also to act positively to prevent injury, ill health, damage and loss arising from work and other legitimate activities carried out within the School.
The School considers the promotion and management of the safety and health of all persons working in it to be an essential part of the staff's duty for which they are accountable at all levels. The School will seek to encourage all of its members to participate in and contribute to the establishment and observance of safe working practices.
However, the School expects all persons working in it, both staff and students, to recognise that there is a clear duty on them to exercise self-discipline and accept responsibility to do everything they can to prevent injury to themselves and others, and loss to the School.
In accordance with this policy, the Welsh School of Pharmacy will:
- Provide and employ resources to ensure that competent advice on safety matters is available.
- Continue to develop and implement procedures and codes of safe working practice.
- Provide training in safe working methods.
- Maintain an appropriate framework for consultation on effective measures for the continual development and promotion of safety and health.
