How to Book

Before arranging to attend a training course you should agree this with your line manager or academic supervisor. Except where stated in the course details, attendance on health and safety courses MUST be booked in advance.

Courses can be booked via

UoR Learn

. This system allows you to instantly confirm that you have a space on the course.

If you have any problems with this method, please contact Health and Safety Services on ext. 8888 or email

There is normally no charge for attending health and safety courses, but in order to manage course numbers we do ask you to make a firm commitment to attend once you have booked a place. If you need to cancel, please tell us as soon as possible, using the contact details above, so we can offer your place to someone else. Occasionally we may need to cancel a course due to insufficient numbers. In these circumstances we will give you as much notice as possible.

Multiple Bookings

If you have a large group staff or students from your School or Directorate who need to attend a particular course it may be possible to arrange a separate course for you, which can be tailored to your needs.

What if the course I want isn't listed?

If you have identified a health and safety training need that is not currently being met, please let Health and Safety Services know. We may be able to arrange special training, or advise on external course providers.


Please contact Health and Safety as soon as you know that you are unable to attend. We can often offer your place to someone else. A late cancellation fee of £40 may be charged to Schools/Offices when less than two working days' notice is given of withdrawal. Cancellation by simply not turning up to a session will increase the fee to £50. Courses being taught by external trainers will be charged at the full cost of the place if cancelled with less than two working days notice.
