The scheduled H&S training courses ensure that the H&S training needs of QMUL are met. Staff and Postgraduate Research Students must ensure that they fulfil the mandatory health and safety training requirements for their role. The Health and Safety Training Policy outlines QMUL’s approach to mandatory training and explains how Schools, Institutes and Directorates should be utilising the following documents:
- Health and Safety Training Matrix
- Individual Health and Safety Training Assessment
- Health and Safety Training Records
Non-attendance: Our courses are usually free for all staff and PhD students to attend. However, there is a cost to QMUL involved in this provision and every non-attendance of a booked participant impacts QMUL resources. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the annual number of non-attendees. To counteract this, it has been agreed by the Vice-Principal for Teaching and Learning and the Chief Operating Officer that a charge for non-attendance will be imposed.
On-line and Classroom based Training:
Online H&S training courses held on QMPlus, including mandatory Fire Safety Awareness and Display Screen Equipment are available for QMUL staff and postgraduate students only.
Classroom based: Scheduled ‘taught’ H&S training courses are open and free upon registration to all QMUL staff and postgraduates (please note - certain nationally accredited courses provided may have a fee). Please refer to the H&S course calendar for upcoming training dates.
Booking onto a course:
Accredited courses are IOSH Working & Managing Safely, Mental Health First Aid and (Emergency) First Aid at Work. These are bookable via the training request forms below. Please note these are free of charge for those on QMUL payrolls to attend and priority will be given based on a number of factors such as the relevance of the training to your role and coverage in your area (for first aid courses).
Non-Accredited courses are bookable via CPD booking system, where we can accommodate much larger numbers (up to 40) of staff, pay rolled & non-pay rolled PhD students and external delegates.
External organisations: non-accredited H&S training courses are open to external organisations and bookable via the External Organisation Non-Accredited H&S Training Request Form. Please note that courses are geared towards QMUL arrangements and there is normally a fee chargeable - see QMUL e-Shop for details.
