Safety Training

Welcome to Safety Training!

The Safety Training is an independent training programme organised by the Safety Training team, a section in the HSE Unit. Our team is in charge of providing Safety training and awareness courses as well as advising people responsible for learning and development in the technical, scientific and administrative departments. We organise, plan and coordinate classroom, online and tailor-made courses on health and Safety and we provide support on course selection and on enrolment procedures to all people working at CERN.

The objective is to enable all personnel to be aware of the occupational risks present at the laboratory and to offer them appropriate training.

The classroom courses are listed and described in the CTA catalogue. They take place at the Safety Training Centre at Prévessin and they typically include both a theoretical and a practical part. The training session are held by CERN internal trainer or external training providers. CERN contractors need to consult the catalogue to find out to which classroom courses they are accepted in.

The online courses, free and open for everybody working at CERN, are listed in the SIR catalogue.
