The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) provides our community with the latest information and training resources in many areas.

Workplace Safety Training

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety provides support to campus partners on training options for workplace safety topics. If you have questions about environmental, health and safety training, discuss with your supervisor or contact the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

Information sheets on a variety of workplace safety topics are available for department safety briefings, “toolbox talks”, and refresher training for you and your team members.

As of April 1, 2022, Oracle HCM Learn Module will be the central platform for employee training. Visit the Human Resources Self-Service Resources webpage for more information and training modules on Oracle HCM.

Department managers and supervisors will provide department-specific safety training as part of the employee onboarding process.
