Training Overview


Environment, health and safety education and training needs exist in all departments on campus. KU-EHS is determined to ensure that the university satisfies that need. When evaluating training needs, there are three primary, driving forces that determine the emphasis and direction that safety training must take: regulatory requirements, the need to improve safety and health as indicated by campus accident and injury statistics, and working conditions, as observed by departments and workers.

With the help of each department, EHS will identify individuals needing mandatory training and refresher sessions. Each department is required to maintain records of safety training for their personnel. Departments may also request additional safety or environmental training that they identify as necessary or beneficial to their operations. KU-EHS currently offers all of our safety coursework online via Canvas, MyTalent, and in-person training courses periodically or by request.

EHS Safety Training Courses are available on CANVAS for Fall 2022.

KU-EHS would like to encourage all departments, schools and individual instructors to make the switch now before Fall 2022. ALL KU-EHS BLACKBOARD course sites will be discontinued after Summer 2022. All student training records in Blackboard will still be available on My Grades until Fall 2024.
