The Department's safety regulations are contained in the departmental booklet "Arrangements forSafety and Security" which is available on the Student Intranet as well as in the Programme Handbooks.UCL has a duty of care to safeguard, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare oftheir employees, students and general public who may be affected by its activities. Similarly, students have aduty to take reasonable care to avoid injury to themselves or to others who may be affected by their workactivities.All undergraduate laboratory work must be supervised by an appropriate member of staff - this is part of ourduty of care. Similarly, for safety and personal security reasons, unsupervised undergraduates are notallowed inside the Department outside the Department's normal hours of work.Safety Contact:Dr Simon Barrass - Departmental Safety Officer1Version 1: 10 September 20182
