The STFC SHE Management System consists of separate Health and Safety and Environment management statements supported by a suite of about 40​ ​SHE codes. Based on relevant legislation, SHE Codes outline the STFC's approach to managing SHE hazards and the standard of controls expected. STFC SHE codes enact the implementation of the UKRI H&S Management System and its associated H&S codes, the cross correlation of STFC and UKRI codes can be found here​.

For staff​ working in Offices a short summary of relevant code requirements can be found in the “STFC Office S​HE Essentials”.

Codes can also be viewed by groups relevant to specific disciplines for example engineering, science, civil/construction, environmental etc.​ as task related categories.

Short summaries of all SHE codes are collated in a printable overview​ available here, those SHE codes that have been significantly ​updated in the past year have the date highlighted in red.
