Validity of your safety awareness training

AIS is setting up an automatic e-mail reminder system for safety training. You are invited to forward this message to everyone concerned.

Reminder: Please check the validity of your Safety courses

Since April 2009 the compulsory basic Safety awareness courses (levels 1, 2 and 3) have been accessible on a "self-service" basis on the web (see CERN Bulletin). Participants are required to pass a test at the end of each course. The test is valid for 3 years so courses must be repeated on a regular basis.

A system of automatic e-mail reminders already exists for level 4 courses on SIR and will be extended to the other levels shortly.

The number of levels you are required to complete depends on your professional category.

Activity Personnel concerned Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4
    Basic safety Basic Safety Specific
Tertiary activities Administrative
(office work, etc.)
‘On site’ activities All professional categories other than the administrative category: manual work, work in hazardous areas, etc. X X X
underground areas
All professional categories X X

You are kindly requested to follow the level 1, 2 and 3 courses on the SIR system if you last completed them (in a class or by video in Building 55) more than 3 years ago.

You can follow the courses and complete the corresponding tests from any computer on or off the CERN site. If you do not have a CERN account, you can access the courses at the kiosks on the ground floor of Building 55 from 7.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
