The EHS New Employee Safety Orientation is now offered on alternating Monday afternoons beginning January 13,2014:
In order to maintain compliance with safety and environmental laws and regulations, it is imperative that all new
employees attend the safety orientation. This subject matter is not covered in detail in the orientation sponsored
by Human Resources. Topics to be discussed include Protective Services; Occupational Health Services; Ergonomics;
Radiation Safety Awareness; OSHA Right to Know and Hazard Communication; Waste Management and Pollution Prevention;
and Biological Safety/Bloodborne Pathogens.
New employees who are supervisors or managers will attend a short session afterwards to ensure that they understand
their responsibilities in areas of employee safety.
(For those employees who need to attend only Bloodborne Pathogen training, the session begins at 3:00 pm)
