A huge amount of work has been undertaken to help keep colleagues, students and essential visitors safe on their return to campus. This encompasses many different areas - from risk assessments and enhanced cleaning, to social distancing measures and modifications to reduce campus footfall.
We have published a Five Steps process to working safely at Oxford Brookes. This aligns with Government guidance on reopening workplaces and has been implemented.
We have also published our University high-level risk assessment, and made all of our workspace risk assessments available to staff.
It is important that all colleagues are familiar with the Five Steps document and FAQs.
Update - Changes from 8 March 2021
On 22 February, the Government announced the road map for moving out of national lockdown. From 8 March, some students can return (those on practical courses who need to access specialist facilities and equipment) and four weeks later a review will be conducted and the Government will decide on the return of remaining students potentially from 12 April.
As a result, a review of our high-level risk assessment has been carried out and some adjustments have been made (see below), i.e., face coverings, with other mitigation measures remaining in place or slightly enhanced.
