Safety health and environment

Safety, health and environment

The University has implemented an integrated safety, health and environmental management system to manage its SHE legislative requirements and to identify and control risks before they lead to an undesired event.


The University has refreshed its Strategic Plan to further recognise that sustaining and enhancing the wellbeing of people, places and the planet are amongst the most important challenges we face today.



At UCLan we recognise that safeguarding, which includes the Prevent duty, is everyone’s responsibility. As such, we are committed to supporting students, apprentices and visitors. 

Prevent duty

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our students, apprentices and staff and to meeting our duties under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and the UK Government's associated Prevent strategy.

Safeguarding roles and responsibilities

It is expected that all colleagues will be aware of systems which support safeguarding and how to recognise and respond appropriately to safeguarding concerns.

Safeguarding and Prevent training

We know it's important that all members of the UCLan community receive the appropriate level of safeguarding training. This may involve some or all of the training on this webpage.
