OHSS Service Overview

Welcome to the Occupational Health & Safety Service (OHSS) website. OHSS is a central support service consisting of a Health & Safety Team and an Occupational Health Team. Our aim is to ensure the health and safety of staff, students, visitors and others, across the full spectrum of University activities and locations, and in so doing, to facilitate the University’s attainment of its core research, teaching and engagement objectives.

The services that we deliver include provision of advice and support, dissemination of information, training, auditing, health assessments, health surveillance and oversight of the University’s Health & Safety management arrangements. We are committed to facilitating an effective, proportionate and sensible approach to risk management across the University.
