Specific Safety Training

In addition to the health & safety induction training that all workers must receive on starting work in the Department of Biology, further health & safety related training might also be required.

A range of general and specific courses are organised for workers. Many of these are organised by the University's Health & Safety Department; listed on the University’s Learning Management System (LMS), accessed via the H&S Training page
