The Department of Environmental Health and Safety is pleased to announce that Lab Safety Training is now available online exclusively. We hope you will find this a more convenient and efficient way to receive your training. Please be sure to take the quiz and press send on the email that pops up at the end of the quiz. This is the only proof we have that you did the training and passed the quiz.
HAVING PROBLEMS sending the results? Are you having difficulties sending your test results? It may be because Outlook is not set up on the computer you are using. When the email pops up at the end of the quiz, just copy and paste your results into the email client of your choice (CUMail, Thunderbird, etc.) and send them to MaryRitterbush@creighton.edu. Instructions are now available on how to do this. Please note that this training does not work well with the Chrome browser.
There are three options for training at this time.
- 2012-2013 Lab Safety Refresher for personnel who have taken lab safety before.
- New Employee/Student Training is for people who are new to Creighton, regardless of the training they received at prior institutions. (25 minutes)
- Lab Safety for Visitors is for the occasional visitor to labs -- computer technicians, administrative personnel, delivery people, and the like. (10 minutes)
- Lab Safety for Physics
- Lab Safety for Teaching Assistants (TAs)
All lab workers that are not Radiation workers must also take the Radiation Safety Basic Education Video and quiz (15 minutes). The annual refresher training for Radiation Workers remains a live training through 2009, and is coordinated through the Radiation Safety Office (x5570).
The letter explaining the new training is available for download.
