Health and Safety Unit
Mission and Values
Our mission is to make a valid contribution to the strategic direction of Aston University. We are dedicated to reducing injuries, accidents and ill health, and improving the wellbeing of all staff and students. We will achieve this by providing tailored, comprehensive advice to managers, high quality training and managing the implementation of regulatory requirements. We will provide high quality and easy to use resources in a timely manner and encourage and support professional growth of all health and safety coordinators.
Our vision is a partnership with staff and students who are aware of risks and are empowered to learn, discover and work in a manner that protects everyone.
The University Employee and Family Assistance Programme is a free, independent, confidential helpline, available to all our staff and family members at any time of the day or night. You can discuss a range of work, personal and family issues. Please call 0800 980 6830. You will be asked to provide your name but this will never be shared with the University.
As well as professional consultations and counselling in person and over the phone, the EFAP has extensive practical advice and resources through the LIVEWELL website.
