The alphabet soup of health and safety training requirements can be daunting. What training do I need? What training will help me and my colleagues to have a safer work environment? EHS is here to help you achieve your goals for a safe and healthy workplace.
Start here with the Safety Training Policy. This document contains a table in Appendix A which summarizes training requirements. EHS is currently working on a document that will hopefully serve as better guide in the near future.
Training can be accomplished a number of ways, including:
Note that some regulations may require a style of delivery or a formal assessment of skills or a test. Some may be provided by EHS and some may be delivered by your supervisor.
Training records are currently the responsibility of each department to maintain. EHS offers a number of forms such as on-the-job and self-study forms that may help you in maintaining records. Skillsoft training is automatically recorded in IRIS. Blackboard records should be kept via a printout of either the completion certificate or the graded quiz.
Check our current calendar for training opportunities.
Posted caledar events are available however EHS may alter the schedule as needed. Registration is required. If insufficient registrations are received the class may be cancelled and you will be notified via email.
