Reporting an incident

If anyone participating in your activity has an accident, suffers an injury or requires any first aid treatment, please complete an Accident Report Form and email it to studentopps@thesu.org.uk.

In case of emergency

In the event of an accident/incident during an SU affiliated activity, please inform us at the earliest opportunity when it is safe to do so. If it is an urgent campus matter, please contact the Glasney Porters Lodge which is attended 24/7 on 01326 253503.

If the matter is non-urgent, contact Student Opps at studentopps@thesu.org.uk.

In the event of an emergency, always call 999, or text 80999 if hard of hearing or speech impaired.

Risk assessments

Authorised group activities are covered by the SU insurance policy. For an activity/event to be authorised, The SU must receive notification of the activity and receive a suitable risk assessment in advance. Failure to submit a risk assessment means your activities are not authorised by The SU and are not insured and the liability falls to committee members if anything goes wrong.

Every SU Activity Group is required to submit a risk assessment. We will not affiliate any groups that do not produce an adequate risk assessment that reflects their specific regular activities. Using the template, please add any risks specific to your group - ask your SU Coordinator for examples if you require them.

Please send completed risk assessment to studentopps@thesu.org.uk.
