Health and Safety

Welcome to the University of Reading's web page for contractors.

On this page you will find the latest version of the following documents:

  • Site Rules and Guidance for Contractors and Consultants working on university property.
  • PowerPoint presentations for staff induction. These are available for you to download and use as they are, or to incorporate into your own induction process.
  • A number of University specific risk assessments.

We also have produced a Pocket Guide on working safely. Copies are available from the reception desk in the Estates & Facilities building (at no cost). We would suggest you provide a copy to your staff as part of their induction process.
