Safety Training and Awareness: a team at your service

Ever wondered who is on the other end of the e-mail address? If so, you might like to know that all the activities relating to safety training and awareness (“Safety Training" for short) are managed by a team dedicated to ensuring the smooth running of CERN’s safety training courses.

This team currently consists of five people: the manager in charge of coordinating all the projects, two administrative assistants who provide logistical support and two technicians who manage the training centre.

This team, which has seen its workload and the number of challenges it faces increase considerably with LS1, is responsible for organising classroom training sessions (in partnership with some 15 training bodies) and for the management of online e-learning courses in partnership with the GS-AIS Group. The members of the team don't just deal with enrolment on the courses: they also help with the development of the Safety Training Centre located in Prévessin and update its website, and then follow up with people who have attended training sessions to monitor the quality of the training provided.

In this way, the Training Catalogue, managed in conjunction with the HR-LD Group and including all CERN’s Safety Training courses, has been completely revised and restructured, in particular to make the training session descriptions easier to understand. The Training Centre itself has been equipped with a new classroom for RP courses and a mock-up of the LHC tunnel.
