Key Performance Indicators 2016



As an employer, it is our duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees. This duty of care also extends to temporary workers we engage through agencies.

Temporary workers engaged through Sopra Steria should complete two online training modules covering Health & Safety in the workplace, and the use of DSE before they start their assignment with Oxford Brookes. There will be a small section of the DSE online training they will need to complete once they have started at Brookes but this will not take much time.

There will be a charge of £25 per person for the provision of this training which the relevant department will be invoiced for. Although there is a cost attached to this training, this arrangement provides a much more cost effective way of ensuring the temporary worker has received the training for which we have a duty of care to provide. By completing the required training before they start their assignment, they will not be required to attend OBU's in house mandatory DSE and Health & Safety courses, resulting in a saving of around 4 hours' pay.
