Health & Safety
The University has moved to a reduced set of COVID restrictions at Business Continuity Planning Level 1. All DPAG staff and student members with SSO credentials should refer to the DPAG intranet's COVID Secure On-site Working page for our departmental risk assessment and protocol for safe working, among other useful health and safety documents.
Staff and students working on site are encouraged to wear face coverings when moving around the department and when working closely with others (unless exempt). Please also wash your hands regularly with soap or sanitiser and be considerate of other people's space. Those on site are also encouraged to continue testing and reporting results to the Early Alert Service and the NHS twice a week. You can access tests either via LFD Collect or another government-sponsored scheme. All are strongly advised to get vaccinated as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Finally, please ensure you follow the latest self-isolation rules and DPAG's Case Response Protocol (SSO required).
Emergency telephone calls can be made from any network telephone by dialling 9-999.
In the event of a serious/life threatening medical emergency call 9-999.
If the injury is less serious call Oxford 9-(01865) 220208 for Accident Service, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington.
If it is an EYE accident: send the injured person to the Eye Hospital and call 01865 224800 to warn the hospital of their arrival (24-hour service). The Eye Hospital is in the West Wing at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The Eye Emergency Department operates a booking system, although patients with urgent, painful or sight threatening conditions will be seen promptly, so ensure that you phone ahead. First aiders may assess that ambulance transport is needed for some injuries.
For example, security issues, gas or water leaks, please follow the below instructions:
