Health and Safety

New ƵAPP Durham building


New ƵAPP Durham is a safe place.


We work hard to make it so, and we rely on the combined efforts of our staff, students and visitors to keep the college safe, putting the welfare of everyone here above all else.




 Our Health & Safety Handbook details all the ways we mitigate risk, including information on how to behave, how to get help if you need it, and how to act in emergencies.  A copy of the full Health & Safety handbook is available on request.

If you have to leave college quickly, follow the green and white running man signs which are all around college.
