Reminder: Bike safety – e-learning module still available!

The “Safe bike riding” e-learning module offered by the Safety Training Section of the HSE Unit is designed for anyone who uses a bike on the CERN site.


The course, which takes around 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed via the SIR application. It presents safety information, such as the road traffic rules, and practical advice, such as the appropriate safety equipment to wear and to have fitted to your bike.

Regarding the rules, we would like to remind you that CERN's Safety Code A7 applies to cyclists as well as motorists. 

The training module was created by the accident prevention service of the HSE Unit after it was noticed that the number of occupational accidents involving cyclists had been constantly increasing since 2008, with a rise from about 20 in 2009 to about 50 in 2013.

Since its launch in September 2013, the course has been taken by more than 670 people. It can be completed at any time, in either English or French.

The Safety Training Section will be happy to answer any questions relating to this module or any other safety training course (contact:
