Mandatory general safety training - correct behavior in hazardous and emergency situations.
Your well-being and safety is important to us! At the beginning of your studies, we conduct a general safety briefing at HFT Stuttgart. For special practical labaratory courses with a greater risk potential, you will be briefed separately in each case depending on the occasion.
You will be instructed by the respective safety officer of your faculty regarding general safety-relevant topics to avoid hazards.
Online participation in the general safety instruction is mandatory (duration: approx. 30 min).
Please confirm your participation electronically following the safety briefing that has taken place. You will receive more detailed information from the safety officer when the safety training is carried out.
At the beginning of your studies at HFT Stuttgart, you are required to attend a general safety briefing.
If you are unable toattend this safety briefing for valid reasons, you will receive a make-up date by e-mail to your HFT address during the first week of lectures.
No. However, at the end of the first year of study (and further at intervals of one year each thereafter), you will be required to refresh your knowledge and understanding regarding the safety-related topics.
You will receive an e-mail with a request to answer questions on the contents of the safety instruction as part of an online test. You can only re-register for the next semester, i.e. continue your studies as scheduled, if you pass the safety test.
