Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advice and Information


Under current health and safety legislation (Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act (No. 10 of 2005))all employers are required to prepare a Safety Statement. The purpose of a Safety Statement is to outline how the health and safety of all persons in a workplace will be safeguarded.

All Computer Science staff, students, and visitors must make themselves familiar with the contents of the School Safety Statement. This document when read in conjunction with the UCD University Parent Safety Statement and any relevant risk assessments as listed within the School Safety Statement indicate how the health and safety of staff, students and visitors to the designated area/facility will be managed.

Any person who has a difficulty with the contents of the School's Safety Statement or a risk assessment should contact the University SIRC Office.
