EHS New Employee Orientation Time Change

The EHS New Employee Safety Orientation is now offered on alternating Monday afternoons beginning January 13,2014:

  • Location: 426 Conference Room
  • Time:
    • 1:00pm - 1:30pm: Technology Transfer and Computer and Statistical Services overview
    • 1:30pm - 2:50pm: General Safety Orientation (admin/non-lab personnel)
    • 3:00pm - 4:30pm: Bloodborne Pathogen (laboratory personnel)

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)

2014 class dates for upcoming Safety Orientations can be found on the EHS website
