Your Health & Safety in the Waterloo Centre

Health and Safety

Ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We continue to work hard to maintain a safe, Covid-secure environment for our students and staff, in line with the latest government guidance.
These include:

  • perspex screens in reception areas and other public spaces
  • clear floor markings to help everyone maintain social distancing
  • an enhanced daily cleaning regime to ensure that learning spaces are kept Covid-secure over time
  • hand sanitising facilities throughout the building, and self-service cleaning equipment at workstations
  • washrooms that are limited to use by only one person at a time
  • posters throughout each college building, reminding us all of our collective responsibility to keep to these arrangements.

Security staff are present during opening hours and the College is monitored by 24-hour CCTV. Whilst the College endeavours to ensure all students, staff and visitors and their possessions are safe and secure, personal items should be kept with you at all times and are brought into the College at your own risk.

Reporting Accidents

Morley has a policy of fully investigating all incidents and accidents in order to reduce any possible risks or possibility of recurrences. If you have something to report please speak to your tutor, the relevant department, or speak to Reception and ask for the Duty Manager.

First Aid and Emergencies

If someone is taken ill or requires first aid for an injury or accident whilst at the College you should contact a member of staff or the Duty Manager. We have trained first aiders on site who will take appropriate action, depending on the nature of the incident.

Fire Alarms and Drills

In the event of a fire alarm, it is essential that everyone evacuate the building as quickly as possible via the safest route and the nearest fire exit. The evacuation points for all staff and students are outside the College on Westminster Bridge Road and King Edward Walk. Please do not leave the evacuation point until you are told it is safe to do so.

Please ask your tutor for directions to the evacuation points if you are unsure. The alarms are tested once a week on Wednesdays and there will be regular fire evacuation drills.

Duty Manager

There is a Duty Manager available in the College from Monday–Friday, 9:00–20:00, during term-time. The Duty Manager’s mobile phone number is 07956 504 266. This is also displayed in every classroom.
