Off-site Locations Safety Information

Safety Desktop

Each department is required to have a Safety Desktop containing information on OSHA required safety programs. EH&S has collected the required information for you and made it available through this web site. The information in this desktop must be readily available at all times to all faculty, staff and students working in the department. It is the supervisor's responsibility to track and maintain the necessary training and test records. EH&S will occasionally audit your site to verify compliance.

Supervisors are responsible for determining which training programs their staff need to complete.
