Heriot-Watt SafeGuarding Services provide a vital role in safeguarding the University’s population, assets and reputation. We are pivotal in delivering a strong care and support service to the students and staff who make up the Heriot-Watt community. SafeGuarding Services operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and our SafeGuarding Officers are the first responders to any incidents occurring on campus. All of our SafeGuarding Officers are first aid and mental health first aid trained and will respond to all SafeZone activations on campus.


Looking after the University's students, staff and property.
