Do I have to complete the saftey training before being allowed access into laboratories?

Staff and students are expected to complete the health and safety training within a reasonable timeframe. If the staff/student recently attended equivalent training at another institution this may be assessed as sufficient, contact

There is no requirement that the classroom training must be completed by staff/student before entry into a laboratory is granted.

Since classroom courses at UNSW are held every 1-2 months it is usual that there is a gap between when an individual starts work at UNSW and when they can attend classroom training. It is the responsibility of the local area to provide a thorough induction into the area (including Safe Work Procedures, Risk Management Forms, PPE, waste, emergency etc) and training on the lab techniques they will be carrying out to ensure they are competent to work in the laboratory (and thus given access). The assessment of the individual by their supervisor is the test of competency, the classroom training by UNSW is an awareness session. Evidence that the individual has enrolled onto the training should be sufficient for entry, with follow-up by the supervisor to ensure that they have attended at the planned date.
