This page is part of a collection of guides which explain the steps we are taking to keep staff and students safe.

We have worked hard to put in place systems, processes, and rules to keep our community safe whilst they work, live, and study with us.

We recognise that it will take people time to get used to the changes on campus and that for some staff, students, and visitors, our rules may be different from those they have experienced elsewhere. We do expect everyone to take responsibility for their own actions and help to ensure that our community remains vibrant and safe.

If you find that someone appears not to be complying with the rules that we have put in place, you should first remind them politely. As things are new and different, we expect that it may take a little time for everyone to remember and adjust. In addition there may be a genuine reason for non-compliance including allowable exemptions under the Scottish Government Rules or other specific access needs.

Staff

If you believe that someone is persistently or deliberately flouting Covid-19 rules and you have been unable to resolve this yourself, you should report your concerns using the non-compliance reporting form.

All managers or appointed investigators must be proactive and follow the normal HR processes which are in place to help resolve such matters. This should start by talking to the member of staff and discussing concerns and actions. If you need support to escalate matters beyond this point you should contact your Human Resources Officer.

Students

If you believe that someone is persistently or deliberately flouting Covid-19 rules and you have been unable to resolve this yourself, you should report your concerns using the non-compliance reporting form.
