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.
