Active Violence Training

As part of ongoing preparations stemming from our active violence drill, we are hosting training sessions designed to specifically address options, methods of evaluating options, and the practical means to carry out decisions based upon those options, in the case of violence. Anyone who would like more information about how to increase their personal safety and safety of those around them is encouraged to attend.

Bloodborne Pathogen Annual Refresher Training

This workshop will provide employees with guidelines and procedures designed to prevent or minimize the occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens or other potentially infectious materials as defined in OSHA 29CFR 1910.1030. BBP training is required for employees that have the potential for contact with blood or body fluids during their daily activities when they are initially hired and annually thereafter. Hepatitis B vaccination information, Universal Precautions and COD procedures for decontamination of equipment and disposal of biohazardous materials will be reviewed.

Hazard Communication - 

What is the Global Harmonized System?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has released an update to the Hazard Communication Standard that determines how safety information, rlated to hazardous materials, is provided to the employees who use them. These revisions include modifications to primary and secondary labels, material safety data sheets and record keeping. All employees who use hazardous materials, and have completed the initial Hazard Communication Class, must complete this workshop.

Mercury Handling & Spill Clean-up

Mercury is a unique metal which is found in a liquid form at room temperature. We commonly find this heavy, silvery white, shining metal in thermometers and mechanical gauges throughout our campus. If your area or department has mercury it is require that there is a mercury spill kit available in case of emergencies. But, do your employees know what to do if an employee is exposed? Do they know proper disposal procedures?

Personal Protective Equipment/Hazard Assessment 

The purpose of this training is to provide managers, supervisors and employees with information and direction about their responsibilities in the selection, use, care and disposal of their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), The type of PPE necessary will be determined by assessing the hazards associated with processes, environmental hazards, chemical hazards, noise hazards, radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner which is capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any part of the body through absorption, inhalation, or physical contact.

Phenol Handling & Spill Clean-up

Phenol can be found as a manufactured chemical as well as a natural substance. Exposure to phenol vapors or direct skin contact can result in short term and long term harm to the body. Phenol spill kits are being developed by EH&S for areas that use or store phenol. This training will review the harmful effects of phenol, how to properly use the materials found in the spill kit, and disposal procedures.
