Changes in Regulations

Council has made the following changes in regulations to come into effect on 2 March.

(a) Regulations for Kellogg College

In regulation 6 of Council Regulations 10 of 2002, concerning Kellogg College (Supplement (2) to Gazette No. 4628, 26 June 2002, p. 1386, as amended on 25 July 2002 and on 29 May 2003), add:

'The governing body may also elect suitably qualified persons to Junior Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships on terms and conditions determined by the governing body and approved by Council.'

[This change in regulation allows Kellogg College to appoint to a small number of Junior Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships to build up the research activities of the college and to be able to offer attachments to researchers from other parts of the University.]

(b) Health and Safety Management Committee

In Council Regulations 15 of 2002, concerning Committees Reporting Directly to Council or One of its Main Committees (Supplement (2) to Gazette No. 4628, 26 June 2002, as amended on 23 March 2006), delete existing regulations 3.41–3.45 and substitute:

'3.41. The Health and Safety Management Committee shall consist of:

(1) a member of Congregation appointed by the Vice-Chancellor as chairman of the committee;

(2) the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research, Academic Services and University Collections);

(3)–(6) the heads of each of the divisions.

3.42. The committee shall be responsible, under Council, for the following:

(a) the determination of the management strategy and policies necessary for the University to discharge its legal obligations in respect of occupational health and safety;

(b) the recommendation of appropriate action necessary to implement the University's Safety Policy, as designed to promote the safety of staff, students, authorised visitors, and members of the public lawfully on university property;

(c) the taking of action on all management matters of safety and occupational health and other areas of the committee's remit, including the control of such funds as may be allocated to it.

3.43. The committee's remit shall include all matters covered by legislation on health and safety, fire safety, food safety, and the transport of dangerous goods, and by environmental protection legislation relating to the disposal of all hazardous wastes, radioactive substances, and genetic modification.

3.44. The committee may set up such subcommittees and specialist advisory groups as it shall consider desirable, and shall determine their membership and terms of reference.

3.45. The committee shall meet at least once a term, and following each meeting shall report to Council on the main matters which it has discussed. The committee shall also make an annual report to Council.'

[These changes in regulations, made on the recommendation of the Health and Safety Management Committee, reflect the committee's role in dealing with occupational health as well as safety matters.]
