Meet the team

Welcome to the Health and Safety pages.

In this area you will find information about how Sussex Downs College takes care of your health and safety and what you need to do to look after yourself and others.

The page tabs at the top provide links to a variety of health and  safety documents.  If you can’t find what you are looking for, please  contact a member of the safety team: Debbie Leslie, Sean Beamish and Jasmine Gayton


The Health and Safety Team are available to provide advice, guidance on matters relating to health and safety legislation and provide training .  We also audit health and safety compliance across the college in a variety of ways.

We are a diverse team coming from different backgrounds to match the College profile.  Between us, we hold all the major health and safety qualifications and are members of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the chartered body for health and safety professionals.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure a member of the H&S team is available every day during normal college hours, this is not always possible as we try to meet the operational demands of the college.

The college health and safety offices are located in:-

Grove House 234 at Eastbourne

Cliffe Building 206 at Lewes
