Recent Hazardous Training
Hazardous Materials training was conducted May 2010 at DEP's Carr Building.
Employee safety training is another requirement of an effective injury and illness prevention program.
While the Department believes in skills training, safety training is also
emphasized. All employees should start the safety training by reading the
Department's Health and Safety
Manual and discussing any problems or safety concerns with your direct
Health and Safety Orientation.
Health and safety orientation begins on the
first day of initial employment or job transfer. Each employee should
have access to a copy of the Health and Safety Manual for review and
future reference, and should be given a personal copy of the safety
rules, policies, and procedures pertaining to his or her job.
Supervisor should ask questions of employees and answer their
questions to ensure knowledge and understanding of safety rules,
policies, and job-specific procedures described in the Health and
safety Manual. Compliance with the safety rules is required.
Health and Safety Training.
Training is one of the most important elements of
any injury and illness prevention program. Such training is
designed to enable employees to learn their jobs properly, bring new
ideas to the workplace, reinforce existing safety policies, and put
the injury and illness prevention program into action. Training
is required for both supervisors and employees alike.
Contracted Safety Training.
Many positions require specific types of safety
training. Some examples are 40-hour Hazard Waste awareness,
Hazardous Waste handling, CPR/First Aid, Blood borne Pathogens, Lab
Safety, etc.. Some of these are provided by an outside
contractor. It is the Supervisor's responsibility to see that
this training is offered in a timely manner.
