Research Safety

Research is a crucial activity of a University. The University has an obligation to provide a healthy and safe environment for the conduct of research activities, and at the same time to ensure that such research activities do not impose an unacceptable risk to the personnel of the University. Administrative bodies of various research funds also require that the safety aspects of research projects be addressed before they are given consideration for funding allocation. It is the University’s policy to use the risk assessment approach in the research safety approval system for both external and internal funding/admission applications.
