Health & Safety

It is our responsibility to make sure that you, our members, are safe. We take this responsibility seriously and work hard to ensure that all of our student groups have the correct support and procedures in place to keep you safe and sound.

In the first instance, any students involved in an emergency issue which the University needs to be made aware of, should be directed to contact Security on 0151-231-2222. If you need to contact JMSU directly, you can contact our emergency number on 07393 877 712.

Insurance

All students that have registered to be part of one of our affiliated student groups are covered under our insurance policy. You must join each group through its webpage on our website in order to be insured.

If you're a non-LJMU student or study at the International Study Centre you will just need to complete the non-LJMU Student Membership Form. These can be found in the "Committee Training" resources section of our website.

If you are unable to pay via our website, please pay in cash at our reception in the John Foster Building, 80-98 Mount Pleasant, L3 5UZ, between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.

Disclaimer: Any students seeking treatment outside of the UK (i.e. Republic of Ireland, EU, Non-EU) may not be covered by our insurance policy. You are strongly advised to contact us prior to any treatment to clarify this matter.

We offer committee members specific training around the following topics: 

  • Accident Reporting
  • First Aid Training
  • Head Case Training (Rugby Union committee only)
