Approved staff

Updated 30 March 2021

The University sees the health, safety and wellbeing of its staff and students as its priority and currently expects most staff to continue working remotely.

What are ‘Approved staff’ and what do they need to do?

Approved staff are staff (and PGRs) whose presence on campus has been approved following this process:

Staff who cannot deliver their academic/faculty/service activities from home

The Executive Dean/ Director or Head of School/ Service may authorise the return to campus of these staff. Once approved, the building contact is notified. The individual also needs to complete the HR Return to Campus Questionnaire.

Before coming onto campus you will receive a Staff Guidance Sheet from your Head of School/Service or Line Manager.

Staff who need to pay a brief one-off visit to collect equipment

You need to be authorised by your Head of School/ Service to arrange a collection.

Staff who need to be on campus for an Occupational Health related reason

You need to be authorised by Health and Safety Services or Occupational Health.
