Managers and Supervisors must undertake risk assessments for all work activities. This includes external fieldwork (any work carried out by staff or students of the University for the purposes of teaching, research, recruitment activities, attending conferences or otherwise representing the institution in places which may be distant from the institution). Risk Assessment Training The University holds Risk Assessment training sessions for managers and supervisions.
