  • Post Graduate Researchers (PGRs) and taught students should see Student Online Training.

Online training modules Britsafe

This self-led training will guide you through staying safe in the workplace and is provided in partnership with the British Safety Council. 

Help with your browser pop-ups - The training is delivered through a browser pop-up window, as commonly used in online training. To access it, you may need to allow a pop-up once or set up your browser to allow pop-ups from British Safety Council. There is a handy guide to doing this in Microsoft Edge in the ‘Downloads’ link at the bottom of this webpage. The function to allow this window to open is easy to find in other browsers (or you can find instructions via a search engine).

The Britsafe package includes interactive activities and videos for:

  • Fire Safety

  • Manual Handling

  • Display Screen Equipment (DSE):

    • DSE includes two separate modules, one for training and one to help you carry out an assessment of your workstation setup.
    • The DSE training prepares you to set up any workstation for comfort and safety and is therefore relevant for any location including working at home and on campus. 
    • As many staff are currently working in more than one location, please carry out the DSE assessment on the workstation you use for the majority of your time.

Further advice and support

If you have any questions about health and safety – either general queries or specific issues around fire safety, your workstation, equipment or training – please contact your local Health and Safety team.
