Divisional Safety Officer (Clinical Dept)
I am a Divisional Safety Officer for the clinical departments of the Medical Sciences Division and am based in the divisional office in the John Radcliffe Hospital. My role is to help heads of department fulfil their health and safety responsibilities and ensure compliance with University Safety Policies. I work closely with departmental Safety Officers and Laboratory Managers to help achieve this through safety inspections, reviewing risk assessments and local training initiatives and am a member of each department’s safety advisory and genetic modification safety committees. I have close links with my very supportive colleagues in the University Safety Office and Occupational Health Service and our counterparts within the various Trusts and Private Finance Initiatives in whose estate our clinical departments are embedded.
I have a B.Sc. Biotechnology, from Abertay University in Dundee and PhD in Biochemistry from Dundee University. I also hold the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.
