Health and Wellbeing


Workplace wellbeing relates to all aspects of your working life, from the quality and safety of your physical environment, to how you feel about your work. 

We have a legal duty of care to staff under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.  We have an obligation and desire to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our entire staff in order to achieve business objectives.

Please see the following relevant Health and Safety policies:

The Safety Office is responsible for providing advice and support to all Schools/Departments to ensure a safe working environment for all staff, students and visitors.

Occupational Health provides independent specialist medical advice to employers and employees on various health related matters at work.

The University's Health Service is based in Cripps Health Centre, which also contains a dental practice, occupational health and a Boots pharmacy.
