Student Placement in the Workspace


In a number of academic courses student placements in industry/commerce is an essential and valuable part of the student?s third level education. However, to ensure the University or Academic Staff do not expose in-experienced students to unacceptable health and safety risks during these work placements, special procedures must be put in place.

These include provisions for:

  • Prior assessment of the prospective employer's health and safety record.
  • Pre-placement training and guidance/ support for students (as appropriate).
  • Written placement approval.
  • Review of safety procedures, in the placement location.
