The University hosts a range of events and activities relating to research, learning and engagement organised by various departments and academic divisions.

Events may vary in scale and audience but they all involve a level of risk that needs to be addressed in the planning stages. As such, there are specific health and safety events management requirements that should be considered for inclusion during all university events management planning.
