The Departmental Health and Safety Self Checklist has been developed to help Heads of Department asure themselves that the local health and safety arrangements within their department are in place and working.
Anyone taking up the role of Head of Department or Senior Administrator for the first time should complete the Departmental H&S Self Checklist e-form and submit it on completion. The checklist may be completed by the Head of Department or can be delegated to the Senior Departmental Administrator for completion and submission, the checklist should also be reviewed and updated at least once every 12 months.
For more information on the responsibilities of Heads of Department and Senior Administrators see the Health and Safety Policy and the University of Warwick 'Leadership and Management of Health and Safety' document.
Useful information is also available from the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) web pages.
