Cambridge Archaeological Unit: Lone Working Fri 8 Nov 2013   10:00 Finished

From fieldwork in far flung places, to lab work at weekends, to securing buildings at night, University staff and students may be working alone. Most of the time, these activities can take place without significant risk provided appropriate precautions are in place. But sometimes working alone can accentuate hazards or even introduce new hazards so the risks of lone working need thorough assessment and suitable control measures.

Dangerous Goods by Air (IATA) Course Wed 8 May 2019   09:30   [More dates...] Finished

This is a CAA approved 3-day training course and open book examination, covering the requirements of the IATA Dangerous Goods by Air Regulations. Someone possessing this qualification will be an asset to their department as carriers ask for more assurances about the packaging and labelling of cargoes.

Note that each participant will need the use of an up to date IATA manual (changes annually) for this course. A few copies will be available on loan but others will have to purchase or borrow one independently.

There will be a 0930 start on the first day but subsequent start, finish and break times will be a matter of negotiation with the trainer.

There is unlikely to be another full IATA course organised centrally until 2021.
