NEW Health & Safety Representatives Elected

After the recent call for nominations for Health & Safety Representatives within the Colleges, the Health & Safety team is pleased to announce the successful nominees.

Health and Safety Representatives (H&S Reps) are staff who are nominated by their colleagues to represent their work group in health and safety matters.

H&S reps are often the go to people in the department if you have had any health and safety related question from “how do I report an event/hazard?” to “I’m taking a group of students on a field trip – what do I need to do?” or “I am suffering from discomfort and pain at my workstation – how do I get an ergonomic assessment?”

H&S reps are a skilled team who are committed to supporting their colleagues to ensure we all get to go home safely at the end of the day.

UC Emergency Procedures Flipsharts – Trapped In An Elevator

We have all seen the Emergency Procedures Flipcharts around, but how many of us have actually read these?

Each week we will look at a page from the flip chart in order to become more familiar with its contents.

TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR

Being trapped in an elevator can be a scary experience.  It is key to keep calm whilst waiting to be rescued.

EMERGENCY CONTACTS

These are phone numbers we should all have programmed on our phones or have put up on our notice boards in our offices and classrooms.

Often we don’t have time to think in an emergency situation – have these handy to ensure a quick response.
