Training

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 supervisor.

  • 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.
