MSE Safety Training
MSE assesses the work nature in our laboratories and incorporate additional safety training requirements on top of those specified in the NTU Safety Training Matrix. These safety training requirements are stipulated in the MSE SOP - Addendum to NTU SOP on WSH Training.
Safety training is conducted to equip laboratory users with awareness and knowledge which will enable them to perform their job in a safe and efficient manner. The MSE HSE Committee has put in place a list of available safety training topics to increase our community’s safety competency. This is aligned with the Workplace Safety and Health Act and the NTU Safety Training and Communication Directive.
All faculty members, staff and students (working within laboratories and offices in MSE) shall adhere to the training requirements specified in the MSE Safety Training Matrix.
The safety information and training needs required for staff to perform safely will depend on the risk assessment of the work. The reporting officer shall ensure that the required safety competency is demonstrated by the worker.
Note: Laboratory users will be denied access to laboratories for failing to complete the compulsory safety training requirements.
