This book will provide a summary of the main obstacles for creating and maintaining high standards of health and safety in higher education research institutions and how to tackle them effectively. The obstacles include high staff turnover and regular student turnover, small groups lacking unified management structure, deadline time pressures, restricted funding models and existing “old school” culture. Often the Health and Safety specialists and personnel managers in these organisations find themselves reiterating the same information, which gets lost as soon as the new cohort of workers arrives. Aimed at organisations worldwide, Universities and research institutes, who conduct scientific and engineering research with transient workers and students.
