Duke-NUS recognizes that the provision of a safe and healthy work environment for employees, students, contractors and visitors is not just a legal requirement but essential for achieving its mission of transforming medicine, improving lives. The School is also committed to ensuring that the community and environment are not placed at added risk from its activities.
The School will take measures to achieve and maintain compliance with all applicable national and university safety and health laws, guidelines and best practices by:
Safety is everyone’s responsibility: junior staff for their own safety and health and that of others working with them; senior staff for ensuring that those working under their supervision are adequately trained and contractors, vendors and visitors are briefed on the safety issues; and management for taking steps to ensure safety and minimize health risk for all.
This policy is applicable to the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School and all its activities.
