Emergencies and environmental incidents

As part of the University's Environmental Management System, the Sustainability Team seek to support the responses to, and record, environmental incidents.


In an emergency, or to escalate incidents to the University Silver Team, contact the University Security Control Centre 24/7 on (3)31818 or dial 101 from the internal network. For contact details which can be used for environmental emergencies on the University estate (for instance inappropriate discharge to either foul sewer or surface water drains) see the Emissions to Drains page.

Environmental Incident Reporting:

Incidents of pollution to water or land should be reported via the Safety Office's AssessNet portal.

Other environmental incidents (for instance harm to wildlife, unauthorised persons removing waste from University sites etc) should be reported using this form.
