Safety Training


      Environmental Health and Safety Training

The listed training requirements and recommendations have been developed by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) applicable to all faculty, staff and students who serve in the listed work areas at the university as noted in the subsequent table.  This training may include online training courses and classroom sessions.  For the online training, one must view the training module and successfully complete the quiz at the end of the training session.   For PowerPoint Presentations, view as a Slide Show from the Beginning.  At the end of the presentation, click on the box, “Proceed to Quiz” and follow the instructions.  Only faculty, staff and students with a TU email username and password will be allowed to complete the quiz.  Print the certificate immediately at the end of the session.  You will not be allowed to reenter the presentation to obtain the certificate at a later date.  Quiz data will be made available to the OEHS Training Coordinator. 

Also, online training requirements can be accomplished by attending the classroom training sessions scheduled with OEHS especially for those employees who do not have access to computers.  Please contact OEHS to schedule or coordinate such training.

Generally, there is no pre-registration for the online courses.  There may be pre-registration required for the classroom classes.  Please note that for some training such as forklift training, an outside training consultant may be used to provide the training.  The cost of such training will be the responsibility of the department.  However, OEHS will coordinate and schedule this activity. 

Please note that the training specifications may be modified per work environment based upon occupational health and safety needs and code requirements.   Also, the list may be changed to include additional work environments.

Departments may require employees to successfully complete other safety training modules or courses in addition to those listed.

For more information on these programs, to schedule training, or to request a training program for your department on health and safety topics not listed, then please contact Blaine Fisher at 504-988-7162 or by email,  


Training Documentation

All safety training must be documented. This can be accomplished via computer data entry associated with a webbased training module or by completing a form provided by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS). If the training is computer data entry and is webbased, then the training module will have a quiz with multiple questions or there may be one question which is in the form of a statement that asks the participant to acknowledge the training. With the completion of a quiz, the results will be entered into the system either as PASS or FAIL. If one passes the quiz, then one will be allowed to print a certificate only at the time of system access immediately following the completion of the quiz. One cannot go back to later retrieve the certificate. The PASS or FAIL designation will be automatically entered into the database accessible by the OEHS Training, Education, and General Safety (TEG) Manager. Results are available to DSRs or supervisors upon request and can be sent via email.

If one wishes to use a form for documentation, then one may use the Training Record Form – Individual Listing or use the Training Record Form – Group Listing to list training session attendees or participants.   All information must be entered on the form and the name must be clearly PRINTED. Handwriting must be legible. The original completed form must be sent to the attention of L. Mayer in OEHS, via campus mail, mail code TW 16 or hand-delivered to room 1156, Tidewater Building, TUHSC. The DSR or supervisor should keep a copy of the completed training form. Data will be entered into the computer data base manually for such completed forms. If you have any questions, then please contact B. Fisher, EHS Training Coordinator at (504) 988-7162 or by email at
