Safety Training Programme - Michaelmas Term 2019

M7/19

The Safety Office has arranged a number of training courses for Michaelmas Term 2019. The training programme is attached for your information. Booking for these courses will open on Monday 7th October 2019 via the link http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/safety/safetytraining/.

[Note:  Booking cannot be made before Monday 7th October 2019. This is because we are changing our booking system from the existing platform to the University’s new system - Accessplanit.  Please bear with us as we migrate the bookings across to this new platform.  If you have any immediate questions though, please contact postmaster@safety.ox.ac.uk]

The Safety Office operates an online course booking system for all these courses. Individuals with a University card are eligible for an account and further information and relevant card application forms are available at: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/card/

Further information about the University's web authentication system, Webauth, and how to go about obtaining a username and password (single sign-on) is available from IT Services via their helpdesk or their website.

Courses are generally provided free of charge to University staff and students. However, departments will be charged a £30 penalty fee if booked trainees fail to turn up on the day, or in the event of late cancellations (within 24 hours), where the place cannot be filled. Trainees are required to sign the attendance register circulated at each course and failure to do so may be interpreted as a failure to attend the session. Trainees are also asked to attend at the start time indicated, and late arrivals may be turned away and charged the ‘no show’ fee.

Departments are reminded that safety training is a legislative requirement and they are asked to review their training needs and ensure that relevant individuals attend the appropriate course(s). Supervisors are also reminded that these centrally provided courses may satisfy only basic training requirements and that they are responsible for ensuring that any additional or specific on-the-job training is delivered, as necessary, on an ongoing basis.
