Training needs analysis


​The SHE training requirements of an individual should be based on the SHE hazards to which the individual may be exposed during their work.

A SHE TNA is in essence no different to that undertaken during the APR process, see. APR. Such assessments may also be conducted as part of a Risk Assessment, see Safety Code No 6, for a specific task or role. An example Risk Assessment for a beam line scientist is included here.

For new starters it is recommended that a specific SHE TNA is conducted within the first 4 weeks of their arrival. The following table outlines the key process steps:

Step Person Action​
1 Employee and line manager Jointly complete a risk assessment identifying hazards and risks of the proposed work or role, previous risk assessments will provide a start point
2 Line manager Identify and document required SHE training by referring to the relevant SHE code or the STFC SHE Training Catalogue (PDF - 114kB - link opens in a new window), matching the hazard with relevant training.
3 Line manager May identify additional courses to benefit the employee. If an employee wishes to take additional courses, and has their supervisor's approval, the courses may be attended
4 Employee and line manager Ensure training is completed, recorded and reviewed for effectiveness. In the case of significant hazards, training must be completed prior to beginning work. Where SHE training is organised locally it is the responsibility of the line manager to ensure that this training is recorded for their staff and recorded in Oracle.
