Weather warnings across the UK

27.2.2018

Vast weather warnings across the uk have been announced as a blast of cold air from the east is set to bring snow to many parts of the country. adverse weather, and the knock-on effects, can cause significant disruption to the university’s operations and affect staffs’ ability to safely travel to work and return home. the university is committed to protecting the health and safety of all its staff and equally it must ensure that disruption caused to its services remains minimal.

The weather conditions, or the after effects of extreme weather, may lead to a complete closure of the campus or separate office locations. in this event, an email will be sent to all staff and all absence will be deemed authorised absence.

Otherwise, staff should use their best endeavours to attend work in all the circumstances but should not put themselves at unnecessary risk when attempting to attend work or returning home. members of staff should use their own judgement and, if unable to attend work or need to leave work to return home, contact their line manager as soon as possible.

If staff are unable to attend the workplace or remain in work, with the agreement of the line manager one of the following options may be considered:

  • Work from home or another campus (if practical)
  • Make the lost time up
  • Take annual leave
  • Take unpaid leave
  • Or a combination of the above options.

The university is also aware staff may need to take emergency leave due to childcare arrangements or other caring responsibilities. normal procedures will apply in these circumstances.

To reiterate, the university will ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all its staff, staff are reminded of their own duty to take reasonable care of their own health and safety and that of other persons who may be affected. this includes taking extra care when travelling to and from work in extreme weather conditions.
