Department & UCL safety induction

All new staff and postgraduate students must complete the Department’s local fire & general safety induction. These inductions are held monthly by the Department Safety Officer (DSO). New starters should attend a session as soon as possible after arrival- you will be contacted with the next available date. 

You will need the following documents to hand to record your induction, please download and pre-fill your details beforehand:

As part of their mandatory training, new staff and postgraduate students must also complete the online UCL Safety Induction and UCL Fire Safety training courses. These must be completed within one month of the start of employment/enrolment.

No specific Covid-19 training is required to come on the UCL site, but students and colleagues are asked to keep up to date with Covid-19 safety information on the UCL webpages. 

Note that visiting and agency staff and visiting students who join the department for extended periods (e.g. a week or more) are treated in the same way as any of our permanent staff or students for training purposes.

People visiting for less than a week are considered guests of the department. Unlike official visitors they do not have to undertake training, but they should be escorted at all times by a staff member.  They must not be allowed or expected to perform any hazardous tasks that require safety training.

Staff members may require other safety training, depending on your role and responsibilities, such as:

Staff using laboratories or workshop areas should also have a recorded induction on local laboratory procedures by the supervisor of the laboratory or a responsible user of the laboratory. At this stage a plan should be set as to which of the of UCL courses the individual should take to be able to safely undertake their work.

    Your line manager will discuss with you any further safety training you may require.
