A briefing for fire wardens at Department of Physics, to ensure they are up to date with their duties.

Theory and practice session on safe manual handling.

This introductory talk on electrical safety, aimed at people at Department of Physics likely to make or adapt equipment that will be connected to the electricity mains supply

Cavendish Safety Forum new Mon 21 Jan 2019   11:00 Finished

The Cavendish Safety Forum is part of the Department of Physics safety consultation arrangements. It is a one-hour seminar designed to disseminate new H&S information to Cavendish users and provide an opporunity for feedback and suggestions from members of the Department.

All Principal Investigators are expected to be represented at the event, either by attending themselves or sending a representative who will report items to them. One person may represent more than one PI.

This induction is required for anyone planning to work unsupervised at the Maxwell Centre, Department of Physics.

It has two parts:

  • Part 1 is for people working anywhere in the building
  • Part 2 is only for those working at the Maxwell laboratories

Physics Health & Safety: H&S Induction Thu 27 Aug 2020   09:55 Finished

Departmental health and safety induction for people starting at the Department of Physics between July and end of September 2020.

Session 1 of this briefing is for everyone and covers what to do in the event of an emergency, and how to report problems.

There will be a short break before Session 2, which is for people carrying out practical experiments in a laboratory, doing other practical (e.g. maintenance) work, managing events or other people.

Both sessions will be conducted live on MS Teams. Details will be sent to you with joining instructions.
