Health and Safety


The hazardous nature of asbestos and asbestos products is well known (please see associated link for detailed information on asbestos hazards PDF format) and it is the University's aim that no one is put at risk from this hazard in their University environment.

The Estate Office is responsible for managing asbestos where it is incorporated into the fabric of University buildings. Estate Office must be contacted prior to any work involving penetration of the building fabric in order that the Asbestos Register can be checked. 

Business Units are responsible for managing asbestos where it is within items of equipment that they own (e.g. seals, refractory linings and insulation).

For the University's policy, arrangements and guidance on management of asbestos please refer to the related links adjacent.

If any member of the University is in doubt about asbestos issues, they should contact the Estate Office helpdesk in the first instance.
