Fire Safety

Welcome to the University Fire Safety Team.

The effects of fire can be devastating, not only in terms of lives lost and injuries, but also in terms of damage to equipment, property, the environment, business interests and reputation. Good management of fire safety is essential to ensure that fires are unlikely to occur; that if they do occur they are likely to be controlled or contained quickly, effectively and safely; or that, if a fire does occur and grow, everyone is able to escape to a place of total safety easily and quickly.

Everyone in the University has a responsibility when it comes to fire safety. We must all take reasonable care to ensure our actions do not compromise our own safety or prejudice the safety of others from the effects of fire.

To support the university community we have provided a number of guidance notesLink opens in a new window to support your activities.
