Corporate Governance

Health and Safety

The Health and Safety Office anticipates and recognises threats, assesses exposure to hazards, manages risk, develops and prioritises strategies for improvements, using the hierarchy of control and implements them, whilst considering resources and sustainability.

We advise and assist the governors of the University and the University Executive Board in carrying out their legal and moral responsibilities in relation to the health, safety and welfare of staff, students, contractors and members of the public, as far as is reasonably practicable.

These web pages are designed to provide you with information and guidance on all matters of health and safety within the University of Portsmouth.
