KU-EHS 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 KU Blackboard and in-classroom training courses periodically or by request.
