Project Portfolio

An online quiz for students is being developed, on health and safety issues for the School of Civil and Building Engineering.

The project began with an information gathering phase. It has been agreed to develop a health and safety student induction similar to the on-line 'Living in halls induction'. This induction is completed by all students before they move into University accommodation.

The aim of the health and safety induction will be to emphasise key concepts that students will need to remember. Large amounts of information are given to new students at the beginning of their first term, so the hope is to get the students' attention before starting University.

A review of safety documentation within the School of Civil and Building Engineering has led to the need to defer creation of this resource.
