The Department aims to provide a safe and healthy work environment where all risks are well managed and reduced to an acceptable level by taking reasonable precautions. We also aim to adopt a sensible approach to risk management. Indeed, the risks to you from working in this Department should form a small fraction of the overall risks that you accept and experience as part of your everyday life! The Biology Health & Safety web pages are the primary source of safety advice for the Department of Biology. Please don't hesitate to ask for more advice and guidance and remember that it is the responsibility of everyone to think about the safety of their work before they start it!
