HEALTH AND SAFETY
Nothing to report at present but the statistics from Orientation Are You Ok incidents, and the drug testing numbers will be presented to a meeting in a couple of weeks.
Orientation went really well. The Events team are to be commended once again on their extraordinary hard work. Jack said it was good to be behind the scenes and get a feel of how hard everyone works. The entire OUSA contributed to a great week. Thank you! Incidences were minimal and St Johns commented they were able to take it easy at times.
Well done to Critic on their first great issue being published.
