Welcome to Health, Safety and Risk Management

The University of Kent promotes a risk based culture. We encourage all managers and staff to engage in assessing and managing all foreseeable risks associated with their activities. This approach not only protects the workforce from harm, but protects the University from the risk of prosecution or litigation.

To this end, the Safety, Health and Environment Unit, staffed by appropriately qualified and experienced professionals, is here to advise and assist managers and staff across the whole University. The information on this website is reviewed and amended regularly to comply with changes in law and best practice.
