There is a legal responsibility within organisations to ensure that their staff receives training to develop the knowledge and skills to ensure a safe and healthy workplace.
Statutory training is training for all staff that is required by law, or where a statutory body has instructed the UHB to provide training on the basis of legislation e.g. fire safety
Mandatory training are the training requirements that have been determined by the UHB and are concerned with minimising risk.
For training to become mandatory, the relevant subject matter experts have to submit an application form to the Mandatory Training Steering Group (MTSG).
Please read the Mandatory Training Procedure for further information, including responsibilities.
