First Aid

We hope you never, ever have any accidents or mishaps here, but if you do, the first aiders listed below are here to help.

In the event an accident does occur this should be recorded in the accident report book and the Departmental Safety Officer ( informed. White copies of accident reports are to be passed to the Head of Administration and Finance for review before they are then sent to the university safety office.

All accidents should be reported to the department (typically via reception) who will ensure a first aider attends as appropriate, an entry is made in the accident book and any first aid supplies used are replenished.

Location of accident report book

The old paper based accident reporting book system has been retired. As of 1/6/2020 there is a new online incident reporting and investigation system (IRIS).

Locations of First Aid Kits

There is at least one first aid kit located on every floor of the buildings. The first aid kits are typically located in the stair cores (cores 2, 3, 5). At the mezzanine level there are also first aid kits within the entry space of the lecture theatres. The kits are regularly checked and restocked by the FM team. If you find a kit that is incomplete or use an item from a kit please report this so it can be replaced immediately.

Fully Automated Defibrillators

There is a fully automated defibrillator available within the department. Familiarity and some training for such devices has been given to the first aiders. In general though the device is fully automatic and could be used by anyone if the need arose. The device is located in the mail room for ease of access. The device is also available for wider use across the ROQ site should other buildings have a need.

Similar devices are also now available within the Blavatnik School of Government and the Primary Health Care buildings.
