Placement students are covered by their host company's insurance policies and as such are required to adhere to all the employer's policies and procedures. This also includes the employer's Health and Safety policy.
The University, in accordance with RGU's Health and Safety guidelines, will request information from the placement host with regard to insurance and Health and Safety policies and any risks that a student may be exposed to. It is on the basis of the information received that a placement is deemed to be suitable or unsuitable. If a placement is deemed unsuitable due to the risks involved, the student will be withdrawn from the opportunity.

Further information on the risks a student may be exposed to will be requested by individual Placement Offices if required.
Each individual Placement Office has put together a Health and Safety Guide for students and this should be read prior to going on placement. It is not an exhaustive guide, but should be read in preparation for placement and in conjunction with the host company's Health and Safety Policy document.
