The College of Public Health, Medical & Veterinary Science is committed to protecting the health and safety of its staff and students. Due to the varied and often hazardous nature of the courses’ activities, the College is governed by stringent Workplace Health and Safety regulations. Staff and students are often exposed to infectious agents and toxic chemicals, handle animals and work with biological and cadaveric material. Those entering the grounds and buildings of the College are expected to familiarise themselves with and respect the health and safety rules to ensure a protected and safe workplace.
In addition to Workplace Health and Safety considerations staff and students must be aware of biosafety practices, vaccination requirements, laboratory regulations and standard operating procedures to be able to work and study within the College of Public Health, Medical & Veterinary Science.
