ECA takes the issue of health and safety very seriously to try to eliminate or minimise the risks involved in our collective working environment wherever possible.
Attendance at the Health and Safety Induction is mandatory for all new ECA students, where the basic ‘ground rules’ will be explained.
It is important that you appreciate that our focus on health and safety is NOT to stop you doing anything, but rather to keep you safe as you carry out your work at ECA. Academic and technical staff, and the ECA Health & Safety Officer, keep a regular eye on observance of these rules purely for the purposes of keeping you all safe.
Further guidance on specific health & safety issues is contained within the series of guides which make up the ECA H&S Handbook. You should familiarise yourself with these early on and refer back to them as appropriate.
