The purpose of the Health and Safety Management - A Guide for Managers document is to provide guidance for Managers in designing and implementing a Safety Management System for areas under their control.

This document sets out a step by step guide for Managers to assist them in developing a Safety Management System.
The SIRC Office is available at all times to provide guidance and advice to Managers within the University on implementing a Safety Management System and steps that can be taken to ensure workplace safety.
