Emergency Action

In the event of an emergency or major incident the emergency services and/or University Security will assume control at their point of arrival at the scene.

Local managers will have an important role during and after an emergency or major incident to:

  • Support those who may be in the vicinity of the incident;
  • Minimise distress to witnesses of the incident;
  • Consider whether continued service delivery is possible and/or appropriate around the affected area while the incident is being dealt with by the emergency services/Security.

Local contingency plans should include arrangements to do this.

Human Resources has issued  Managing Emergency Events -Guidance for Managers (PDF 29KB) to help managers should an emergency or major incident occur.
