Universities are complex and multifaceted facilities. Potential risk is everywhere, and compliance is key to avoiding dangers of varying scale.

Facilities teams are responsible for protecting not only the welfare of staff and students, but also the reputation of institutions. However, for many, compliance is often undervalued, or overlooked as a means of avoiding anything from injury and illness, through to financial loss and litigation.

In this webinar, our panel of Facilities and Compliance experts discuss the key areas to look to, and critical steps to take to protect your institution.


  • Effectively communicating compliance to stakeholders at every level
  • Keeping up with constantly changing legislation
  • Personnel and ethics
  • Cleaning products and PPE
  • More useful tips and advice, to keep your campus safe and mind at ease
