An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Understands relevant health and safety issues and demonstrates responsible working practices.
  • Takes responsibility for own work space. Aware of impact on others and wider environment.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Recognises the significance and relevance of health and safety regulation and guidance. Sets example, can educate and advise peers and less experienced researchers/students.
  • Takes responsibility for immediate work environment and people in it.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as C1.1 Professional Conduct: Health and Safety
