New resource: Occupational Health & Safety Information Service

We now have access to the Occupational Health & Safety Information Service (OHSIS) database supplied by IHS. With access to over 400 publishing organisations, this resource provides full text documents on health and safety issues including first aid, electrical safety, manual handling, safety training and dangerous substances. Full text British Standards related to health/safety and fire are included, as are selected Institute of Petroleum Model Codes of Safe Practice.

The service is available from www.info4education.com and can be used on and off campus by University of Aberdeen staff and students. Login is by Shibboleth/UK Federation – use your computer username and password after you have selected University of Aberdeen.
