University Health and Safety Policy: Notice

The Director of the Health and Safety Division of the Unified Administrative Service wishes to draw the attention of members of the University to the University's Health and Safety Policy.

Statement of Health and Safety Policy

The University of Cambridge is committed to the highest standards of excellence in education and research. This commitment to excellence applies equally to the way in which the University accepts its responsibilities for the health and safety of all staff, students, visitors, and others who may be affected by the activities of the University.

Accordingly the University will take all reasonable steps necessary to provide a healthy and safe environment for work and study. Compliance with all statutory obligations is the minimum standard. It is the duty of every employee to take care of their own health and safety and that of others who could be affected by their acts or omissions. The University policy on Health and Safety can only be effective if there is commitment by all staff, students, visitors, and others at the University.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alison Richard
