St George’s, University of London is committed to ensuring that all who visit, work or study here do so in safety.

We have made arrangements for the management and implementation of safety, health, environment and wellbeing-related issues, as set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This includes a governance structure using committees with attendance from all areas within the university. This model provides opportunities for issues to be raised, discussed, escalated, monitored and reviewed.​ 

The governance structure is overseen by the Safety Management Committee with assistance from the Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) office as detailed in the chart below.
