    • Procedures which allow appropriately trained individuals to make decisions and operate equipment
    • Appropriate training
Basic safety training is the responsibility of your home institute

If you have staff (students) working with you, then you are responsible for assuring that they are appropriately trained

RAL’s responsibility is to make you aware!
  • To provide you with the environment to carry out MICE safely!
  • To be satisfied that the collaboration adheres to a sufficient safety standard
  • General site awareness
    • Fire, Harwell incident
    • Site traffic, lifting, VDU, health
    • Regulatory framework
  • Advice, Responsibilities & Authorities
    • Authorisation and procedures (Permit to work, authorised officers)
    • risk assessment (common sense and how to use it!)

    • ...a letter from your home institute is sufficient.
