Initial safety training

  • We are required to provide employees with initial safety training.
  • You may complete this initial training via web-based tutorials.

Web-based initial training

  • You may satisfy your initial safety training by viewing web-based tutorials and successfully completing a short quiz for each.
  • These tutorials cover introduction to research safety; chemical safety; chemical waste management; and globally harmonized system of classification and labeling of chemicals.
  • Click on one of the tutorials and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • You will need to enter your Internet ID and password.
  • Each tutorial concludes with a short quiz.
  • If you successfully complete the quiz, you will receive an email stating that "a record of your training has been entered into your University."
