Queen Mary Schools, Institutes and Directorates must copy and adapt MySafety risk assessment RA1167 to create their own departmental COVID-19 Secure risk assessment before return to campus is permitted. Individual staff or students do not have to duplicate the departmental COVID-19 Secure risk control measures within their own risk assessment unless they vary for a specific research, teaching or other specialist activity.
Staff, PGR students and where relevant others, must be emailed their departmental COVID-19 Secure risk assessment for user sign off retention, the assessor must add all email addresses to the distribution list of the MySafety risk assessment record. Please note those added to distribution lists will receive an email generated automatically by MySafety (firstname.lastname@example.org), which may be delivered to their junk/spam folder. Please ensure you regularly check this folder.
