The University Health and Safety Department provides a range of training courses and at School level some in-house training is available (e.g. using hand held power tools, considerations when soldering, etc).
Safety Training Plans are used to identify training requirements within the School and ensure that appropriate training is arranged. Training needs are identified and suitable courses arranged by the H&S Assistant.
