Incident Reporting

We know that accidents can't always be helped but we want to make sure we know about it, so we can check in the Group and member, and support where we need to. To do this, please fill in the quick and easy online RHSU incident report form. We would urge you to complete it as soon as you can and ideally at the venue where the incident happened. The sooner we know, the sooner we can support and this information can be used to help down the line if needed.

First Aid Kits

If your group requires a first aid kit, don't worry: we've got you covered. We can provide one at the beginning of every year, fully stocked and ready to go. Don't forget, it's your responsibility to keep and replenish when bits and pieces get used. At the end of the year, these kits have to be signed back into the Helpdesk. 


It's important to keep an inventory of all the equipment you as a Group own and are responsible for. If you have any issues with storage, let us know and we could arrange space at Storage Inn. 


Where the core activity of your group requires the need for regular safety audits (i.e. rowing, Mountaineering & Climbing), please make sure you get in touch with us so we can help support this and ensure accurate and up to date records are maintained. Wear and tear of equipment is part of the expected life cycle. Where possible, we would expect committees to consider this within your annual Student Group Funding application, however, in cases where this has not been possible or where there has been in year wear and tear, please get in touch with us as we have an allocated health and safety budget for this purpose.
