The University of Nevada, Reno Environmental Health and Safety Department provides a host of in-class training courses on a regular basis. These, when supplemented by department and workspace-specific training, satisfy various local, state, and federal training requirements. In addition to the legal aspect, proper training also serves to educate individuals to become proponents of safety on this campus--resulting in a safe, helpful, and efficient working and learning environment.
Starting in the fall of 2013, EH&S has begun to develop online courses in order to make training more accessible to busy students, volunteers, faculty, and staff. Both these electronic training sessions and the in-person workshops may be registered for on the Training Registration page.
The EH&S Learning Management System hosts all of the online training content as well as provides a means by which individuals may view their upcoming courses and their training attendance history. This innovative software has been built from the ground-up by University of Nevada, Reno Information Technology and Environmental Health and Safety programmers.
If you have questions regarding which courses are available or which should be taken in order to perform a particular job duty, please review the downloadable Training Matrix and Laboratory Personnel Training Requirements. In addition to formal training courses, EH&S also maintains an extensive library of training DVDs which are available to be borrowed upon request.
