Health, Safety & Wellbeing Policy

LUU is committed to providing a safe workplace for our employees, you can read our health and safety policy detailing roles and responsibilities via the link below.

Risk Assessments

Risk assessments are a big part of Health, Safety and Wellbeing at LUU, we have Risk Assessments for your everyday work and for those more unusual or one off activities. Your manager will share these with you during your induction and keep you updated throughout your time here at LUU but you might be asked to write a Risk Assessment for activity you are doing. There is a course on Love to Learn you will complete during your induction called Hazard and Risk Identification that will give you the underlying principals. You can then use our Risk Assessment template to write up your Risk Assessment before you share it with all your Team.

Health & Safety Training

Every member of staff in LUU undertakes Health and safety training as part of their induction and then annual refreshers to make sure the knowledge is still all there, This training is tracked in our Love to Learn system.

Accident and Near Miss Reporting

If you need to report an accident then please use our Accident Reporting form once you have filled this out please hand it to the Duty Manager as soon as you can . If you had a near miss then we really want to know about it too, this helps us prevent future accidents. Please tell us using our Near Miss Report forms you can print some of these out to keep in your work spaces but there are paper copies in the Resource room on level 1 and the staff room. Once you have filled this out please use the postboxes in these two locations or hand a copy to the Duty managers.

Health and Safety Reps

Jo Barton is our Health and Safety Representative for Staff. They are there for you to report any issues or concerns that you may have regarding your working environment. Whether it is something broken, a hazard, or facilities issues, then please feel free to send them an email.

The representative will also be holding Monthly drop-in sessions where you can see Jo and Harry and report anything directly to them. This does not mean you cannot report anything in-between drop-ins.

The drop ins will be on the last Friday of every month in Pyramid Canteen between 3-5pm. There will always be one of them there unless we let you know beforehand!

Don't forget, you can also submit an anonymous form to the Health and Safety Reps, click here
