The Safety Executive Group (SEG) is responsible for providing active and visible leadership for the University’s safety management system and safety culture. It reports directly to Council and is supported by:
- the Safety Network, an extensive community of practice comprising professional advisers and other safety role-holders
- the Consultative Committee for Health and Safety (CCHS)
These three groups work closely together to provide leadership, strategic oversight and direction.
SEG has two co-chairs – Gill Aitken, The Registrar, and Martin Maiden, Professor of Molecular Epidemiology, Zoology. Read Martin’s blog about his ambitions for the EveryDaySafe programme.
Its membership also includes senior leaders of the University’s safety, assurance and finance functions, divisional registrars and academic representatives.
SEG’s remit covers five themes:
- Implementation of policies
- Estate and environment
Its membership will also include senior leaders in these areas and it will work in partnership with related committees that have an interest in safety-related matters.
