Health and Safety Co-ordinators

Health & Safety Co-ordinators are members of staff who are appointed by the Head of School /Function or Unit Director to act on their behalf to co-ordinate day-to-day health and safety arrangements.

Health & Safety Co-ordinators (HSCs) must have the authority and personal skills to be able to implement effective local H&S arrangements and to advise the Head of School/Function if performance/compliance does not reach the standards required.

Duties of H&S Coordinators will vary, dependent on the type of environment they work in. To reflect the different needs of these environments, HSC role descriptions and training requirements have been separated into those for higher and lower risk areas.

Higher risk areas

include: Schools and Functions with laboratories, workshops or equipment which may pose a significant risk.

Lower risk areas

include: Schools and Functions where main hazards are office work and travel.
