Covid-19 Resource Centre

SEPS have prepared a series of generic Covid-19 risk assessments, templates and other resources in consulation with management units across the University.  These set out, in broad terms, the risks and asssociated control measures being established. They should be read in conjunction with the University's campus Management Plan and Guides. 

Unit managers and Principal Investigators should note that their task-specific risk and COSHH assessments should be reviewed and may need to be updated to take account of changes needed to maintain physical distancing arrangements or to protect workers from infection risk when work on campus recommences. 

In support of this SEPS have prepared a series of risk assessment templates covering general and specific activities that can be used by units planning their return to work processes. Units planning any return in the current phase of Covid control must actively discuss this with Estates to ensure that any on-campus work is properly authorised and co-ordinated.

SEPS have produced simple inforgraphics to explain the isolation procedures and reporting requirements that should be followed by students, staff and line managers should they be diagnosed with Covid-19, become unwell at work with possible symtoms or be identified as a close contact of af an infected person.  They can be accessed via the following links:
