Student Health and Safety Guide 2011-2012

INTRODUCTION

This document is available on the JCAMD web pages and staff should make students aware of its existence end ash students to read it.

The Faculty has a unique range of facilities and equipment for student use. However, this also means there are dangers, which require that the health and safety regulations must be strictly observed. This is a legal requirement and a condition of acceptance onto all courses. These rules and regulations are for your own and everyone’s health and safety and any breach is a serious, possibly criminal, offence. Every student has a personal duty of care for themselves and for others. You must familiarise yourself with the rules and regulations in this document and notices that are in each room, area or workshop, and comply with them. Risk assessments for all hazardous activities (including substances, machinery, etc.) are available in the workplace or from staff.

Never run in corridors or on stairways or indulge in horseplay.

Report any suspected health or safety hazard or accident to a lecturer, technician or at the Reception desk. Anyone breaking the health and safety rules and regulations is a hazard and should be reported. All accidents or dangerous occurrences must be reported to a member of staff. The member of staff will then take appropriate action and will fill in an accident report, which will be sent to the Safety Officer (see the Health and Safety website mentioned in Appendix 4). Consider the knowledge and application of Health & Safety regulations as good professional practice and part of your studies, in preparation for your career. Please be considerate of the health, safety and welfare of others. Remember – you are responsible for your own health, safety, and that of anyone else whom your actions may affect.
