All staff and researchers must attend a Local Fire Safety Induction and complete the Fire Safety & UCL Safety training courses on their first day of work.
Local inductions are normally carried out by line managers or area safety reps. Researchers will not be permitted to work in the lab until they have completed all their mandatory safety training.
The table below shows the essential training requirements for all staff, researchers, and masters students in the department.
|All Staff||Local Fire Safety||Guided Tour - Manager/Area Safety Rep (refreshed every two years)|
|All Staff||Fire Safety||LearnUpon - First Day|
|All Staff||UCL Safety Induction||LearnUpon - First Day|
|Then EITHER Lab OR Office Safety in Chemical Engineering|
|Office-based Staff||Office Safety in Chemical Engineering||Moodle (Code: UCLChemEng) - First Day|
|Lab-based Staff||Laboratory Safety in Chemical Engineering||Moodle (Code: UCLChemEng) - First Day|
The table below shows mandatory training for lab-based staff, researchers, and masters students.
