KU-EHS Expands Online Safety Course Curriculum

Friday, May 2, 2014

The Department of Environment, Health & Safety has announced that they have expanded their online safety KU Blackboard course curriculum from 13 courses to 27. KU-EHS' Blackboard training went live in July 2013 and currently, has 850 enrolled students across campus. The EHS curriculum now includes a new Facilities Services course list, new (and updated) coursework in: Laboratory Safety, HazMat Safety, Biosafety, Art Safety, and Employee and Occupational Safety lists. (Full list)

Mike Russell, Director for KU-Environment, Health and Safety states, "Expanding our online curriculum was something that we wanted to do all along. With the overwhelming positive response and course topic requests we received from the campus community, we made it happen." EHS Lab Safety Specialist, Sean Hadley states, "The response has been fantastic from the campus community. Once we went live with our curriculum, we had several individuals and campus departments contact me wanting to find out how we could help them integrate the coursework into their safety programs or to even suggest new course ideas. Many of the ideas for new courses came from users.”

Hadley continues, “KU-EHS is a resource to the campus community. We welcome the opportunity to work with campus departments or even individual instructors to integrate our coursework into departmental or academic courses.”
