Most health and safety regulations enacted by federal, state and/or local regulatory agencies, particularly the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), have a training program. Employers must provide training programs pertinent to a particular safety program at no cost to the employee on company time.
The University Office of Environmental Health and Safety facilitates periodic training for all employees as required by a particular environmental health or safety regulations. Some training is annually required while other training is only initial training upon employment.
