Biological Safety Work activities at the University may be undertaken that involve biological agents (including genetic modification). The University aims to prevent or reduce exposure to such materials by complying with relevant legislation. Chemical Safety Work at the University requires the use of substances that can cause harm to a persons health. The University aims to ensure that, as far as reasonably practicable, exposure to such materials is limited. Fire Safety The University is committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standards of fire safety for all employees, students and others who may be affected by the University's activities. Radiation Safety Across the University of Strathclyde, there are many uses of both ionising and non-ionising radiations (including artificial optical radiations and EMFs). Working with any form of radiation requires effective planning, organisation and control.
