Sussex staff member leads rewrite of health and safety guidance
New guidance on managing health and safety in further and higher education has been given a national launch.
Marion Richards, Director of Health and Safety at Sussex, led the project group to rewrite the guidance, titled Responsible research: Managing health and safety in research, which was unveiled at the Universities Safety and Health Association (USHA) autumn seminar held at the Natural History Museum in London on 24 October. (Wednesday)
The guidance, published in association with the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), aims to help colleges, universities, and research organisations to ensure good health and safety performance in a research environment. It covers such topics as security, emergency planning, hazardous waste, and occupational health.
The event also featured Jim Al-Khalili, broadcaster and Professor of Physics at the University of Surrey, as a keynote speaker.
