The union will include training sessions on all Health & Safety issues, including fire procedures and general fire precautions in its induction programme. New staff are invited by the university to attend an induction meeting. It is necessary for staff to attend this training or you may find your appointment will not be confirmed. Health & Safety training for student staff is carried out at induction and the training is given by line managers. Depending on the type of work staff can expect to cover areas such as Duty of Care, manual handling, ladder safety, COSHH, risk assessments, emergency procedures, use of VDE, and first aid.
