Training & Development

The Safety Office provides safety training and development opportunities for members of the University. Some of our courses are open to everyone; other courses and briefings may only be available to those with specific safety roles. We include this information in the course descriptions.

As the University has a legal duty to provide health and safety training, we will inform departments and faculties about course and briefing attendance via the Departmental Safety Officer. An Individual Safety Training Record is available, for use by individuals. Guidance for departments on the use of this Record is included in this document. The record is designed primarily for those who work in a laboratory environment, but it can be adapted for any type of work.

If you would like any other help or support with safety training, including additional courses tailored to your department or faculty, please contact us at:

Staff in colleges and allied institutions can attend SO courses but there may be a fee for this. We can also provide tailored courses for colleges. Contact us at: for further details.
