4. 'Perspectives on Health and Safety - We're all in this together!' - 30 mins
With Steve Pace, Specialist Course Director, The Institute for Chemistry in Industry at the University of Hull.
The current Covid-19 pandemic has brought health and safety to the forefront of every conceivable type of organisation in the world. This seminar is intended to be a primer for postgraduate researchers on the importance of Health and Safety, providing an overview of roles and responsibilities that we all have both legally and morally in relation to health and safety. The seminar will highlight requirements of UK legislation that apply to everyone, whether working in academia or industry. It also aims to highlight how postgraduate researchers can contribute and cooperate to maintain or improve health and safety standards in their activities.
5. Health and Safety Question and Answer Session - 15 mins
With Steve and (hopefully) a Health and Safety Legal Expert/Solicitor (TBC) from a Kingston Upon Hull solicitors’ practice.
Whilst this seminar will be of particular interest to PGRs from the sciences, the content will also be relevant to PGRs from all faculties.
