UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction


IRDR Safety Induction

All new starters need to complete the safety checklist and complete the online safety induction (detailed on the checklist). It is the responsibility of line managers/supervisors that it is completed. Forms should be returned to the IRDR Safety Officer.

Risk assessments are required for most work. UCL has raised its level of concern following a serious accident in Nanotechnology. Examples of risk assessments include: EEFIT Field Guide, 2016 Kumamoto EEFIT Mission Risk Assessment.

UCL risk assessments should be completed online through UCL RiskNET tools at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/estates/safetynet/

There have been a number of enquiries about working in potentially dangerous places (e.g Tajikistan/Afghanistan border, Eritrea, Kashmir). See the Security Guidelines for more advice on these matters.

Organisations who can provide training include:




If you have questions please contact your line manager/supervisor, Rosie or Peter.
