What we need to do and why this is important
Review the need for a safety app
And/or accelerate consideration of the Campus Card performing the role of a safety app. The safety app is useful to both student and staff audiences.

Improve guidelines for student groups
On organising safe events, safe venues, camps and trips, including templates for Health & Safety Plans and Risk Management.
Student Groups deliver events and organise trips and it is important that the organisers of these activities are equipped with the information they need to organise safe activities, as well as know how to respond if there is an incident.

The University’s responsibility for preventing and responding to HSB also extends to organisations that have a work-based learning relationship with the University.
