Phased return: things to do before you return

University logo

As you know, many colleagues are transitioning back to campus this month. Your Head of School or Function will keep you informed of when your team is likely to return, but if you do have any immediate questions, please speak to your line manager.

While the University is putting in place lots of safety measures, we all have a responsibility to help keep our whole community safe. Before returning to campus, please complete two short induction modules in UoRLearn so that you understand what you need to do:

  • Generic COVID Induction Module 1 - Health and Workplace Expectations. This covers our expectations of colleagues, when not to return to campus, NHS Test & Trace Service, wellbeing support, controlling workplace transmission, face coverings, and travel to and from work.
  • Generic COVID Induction Module 2 - Buildings and Workspaces. This covers COVID-19 secure measures, common area plans, external areas, cleaning, emergency arrangements, and using workplace facilities.
  • Colleagues involved in face-to-face teaching will also need complete the Generic COVID Induction Module 3. This covers key information and documents, teaching activity, face coverings, responsibilities "before, during, and at the end of a teaching session", student information/expectations, and fire safety.

You will also be invited to take part in a local induction outlining the safety measures that have been tailored to your individual School or Function. Details will be shared by your Head of School/Function, or your local Health & Safety Co-ordinator.

Key things to read

As well as the induction modules mentioned above, you should also review the following guidance before you return:

  • Code of Conduct: be considerate of those around you and play your part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
  • Corporate-level risk assessment: setting out the main steps being taken to minimise risks of COVID-19 on campus and who is responsible for managing these, to be supplemented by local risk assessments for specific activities.
  • Safety Note 76 Social Distancing: download the latest campus social distancing guidance.
  • COVID-19 FAQS: browse any topics relevant to you and your role (we are updating these frequently).

If you have any queries, please speak to your line manager in the first instance.
