This is a guide for Managers and Principle Investigators detailing the induction process for their new starters. It will cover new UCL-based LCN Staff and Students, including CDT students.
New UCL-based Staff and Students
These are people who are enrolled on a research program or are employed by UCL and have a myHR account.
Building access will only be given after the successful completion of:
- An in-person Fire Tour (TN086 Form). Completed with the Safety and Facilities Manager.
- UCL Fire Safety Training.
A full list of Mandatory Training Courses, which are not necessary for building access but must also be completed, can be found below.
For researchers who are primarily based in the lab, they must complete the following in order to gain access:
- A recorded lab induction with the lab manager.
- HSF4 in order to state they understand their responsibilities.
- Principles of laboratory safety at UCL
Further courses based on specific hazards can be found in Appendix 2. These are not mandatory for lab access.
Desks in the LCN are not allocated, rather people may use desks on floors that align with their research area / group.
After users have been granted building access they can then set up a clean room access by following the steps of the Cleanroom Induction Flyer, including creating a PPMS account.
- Mandatory Training for All Staff
A full list of Mandatory Training courses can be found on the UCL Mandatory Training website for staff and the Doctoral School website for PhD researchers.
Managers can see the mandatory training status of their direct reports using Tableau.
