What is T100?  

  • It is a meaningful and proportionate safety management system, which meets UCL H&S Policy.
  • It enables self-measurement of our performance, identifies areas for improvement and gives practical actions to help us do the right things.

What does this mean for IEHC?

  • Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care has been classed as low hazard which means that we will need to comply with a lighter version of T100, called T100 Lite.
  • We are required to complete a T100 Lite assessment within 12 months from now, as per UCL's Health & Safety Objectives.

What does this mean for me?

You must be aware:

  • that IEHC has a Responsible Persons Register (found on riskNET), where all DSE, First Aid, Fire Evacuation Marshals and other safety personnel are listed;
  • that IEHC has a Response and Contingency Plan, and you know what to do should there be an incident;
  • that you know what your safety responsibilities are as an individual, and relating to your role e.g. staff member, line manager, senior manager etc.;
  • and how to report an incident.


  • During 2023, staff from Safety Services will be assessing IEHC and will be asking a random selection of staff some key questions.
  • Please ensure you are familiar with all of the above and get ready to be tested!

    Response and contingency plan

    Portable Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are lightweight devices. They are easy to operate, designed to be used by any person with or without training. They are used when a casualty has a serious cardiac rhythm disturbance causing unconsciousness, such as a heart attack.

    How to find a defibrillator?

    30 Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) devices have been installed throughout the UCL Bloomsbury campus for use in emergency situations.

    An interactive map is available, via the following link, which will show the locations of the AED's across the campus:
