Children/Work Experience

University of Worcester premises are not primarily designed for children (under 16)and there are many hazards that could put them at risk. In addition, University of Worcester has a legal duty to ensure that any visitor will be safe whilst using its premises and there is a higher duty of care when the visitor is a child.
