Dear S Grove,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning RIDDOR
accident and incident statistics from 2010 – 2017 dated 05/08/2018 and
attached to this email. In your request, you ask for the numbers of
Reportables divided by ‘School/College and Division’.

 

The University is not strictly divided into these sections, therefore I
wanted to clarify with you what division you would like? The University
has 3 Colleges which are sub-divided into Schools or Deaneries. Each of
these are then again sub-divided into Research Groups, Departments,
Divisions, etc. There are also 3 Support Services, which are then
sub-divided into a number of Departments.

 

You can find the list of Schools/Deaneries at
[1]https://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments....

 

Unfortunately there is no equivalent webpage for the Support Services;
therefore I have put together a list of those Departments for you, as
follows:

Information Services Group:

 

EDINA and Data Library

IT Infrastructure

Application Development and Operations

Library and University Collections

ISG Corporate

Digital Curation Centre

User Services Directorate

Learning, Teaching and Web

Information Security Directorate

 

Corporate Services Group:

 

Bioresearch & Veterinary Services

Health and Safety Department

Estates Department

Accommodation, Catering and Events

Centre for Sport and Exercise

Finance

Research Support Office

Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Research and Innovation

Procurement Office incorporating Printing Services

Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Corporate Services Group

 

University Secretary's Group:

 

Legal Services

Development and Alumni

Student Services

University Secretary

International Office

Communications and Marketing

Deputy Secretary Strategic Planning

Human Resources

Internal Audit

 

However, if you wish for the statistics divided into the groupings above,
and for the number of years already mentioned, this will take more than
one working day to gather and a fee will therefore be applicable.

If, however, you only wish the statistics divided by the 3 Colleges and 3
Support Groups, then I can supply you with those statistics with no
associated fee.

 

Please respond within 40 working days of receipt of this email, or your
request will expire.

 

Kind regards

Dear S Grove,

 

Thank you for your email of 05/08/2018 requesting information about RIDDOR
accident and incident statistics from 2010 – 2017 and for your subsequent
clarification of 20/08/2018 regarding the scope of the statistics
requested.

 

The University of Edinburgh is a global university, rooted in Scotland. We
are globally recognised for our research, development and innovation and
we have provided world-class teaching to our students for more than 425
years. We are the largest university in Scotland and in 2016/17 our annual
revenue was £929 million, of which £265 million was research income. We
have over 39,000 students and over 14,000 staff. We are a founding member
of the UK’s Russell Group of leading research universities and a member of
the League of European Research Universities.

 

The Health and Safety Department publish statistics for all accidents and
incidents in the University on an annual basis. The annual accident and
incident statistics at University level are available through the
University publication scheme at
[1]www.ed.ac.uk/records-management/freedom-information/published-information/health-and-safety/health-and-safety-statistics. 

 

You requested the number of reportable incidents that were communicated by
the University to the Health and Safety Executive under the Reporting of
Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 and 2013
(RIDDOR 1995 and 2013) in the University’s three academic colleges, by
school. Please find attached to this email those statistics by year,
school, and type of incident. As you will see from the attached, we have a
very low rate of RIDDOR Reportables compared to the large number of people
on our premises.  Our population statistics, by college and school, are
available online at:
[2]www.ed.ac.uk/governance-strategic-planning/facts-and-figures/university-factsheet.

 

Right to review

If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask the University to
conduct a review of this decision by contacting the University's Records
Management Section (www.ed.ac.uk/records-management/about/contact) in
writing (e.g. by letter or email) or in some other recorded form (e.g.
audio or video tape).  You should describe the original request, explain
your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address for
correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this letter to
submit a review request.  When the review process has been completed, if
you are still dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Scottish Information
Commissioner using the guidance at www.itspublicknowledge.info/Appeal.  If
you do not have access to the Internet, please let me know and I will
provide a copy of the relevant web pages.
