EH&S is pleased
to provide the 2009
schedule for Safety and Defensive Driving Classes (also on EH&S
website - http://safety.nmsu.edu). During
this period, EH&S will provide over a 120 safety & related
training classes for
employees and the University Community at our Safety Training Facility (map).
Please note the some
tentative and that we restrict the sign-up for many of the safety
30 days in advance to allow some schedule modification for
Safety Training Requirements. All new employees should observe the
requirement for safety training via the Employee
Safety & HazCom Class.
This class is presented at least every
other week and is scheduled to coordinate with the New Employee Benefit
Orientations sessions. This class is required under NMSU policy and is
to ensure NMSU compliance with EPA and OSHA obligations for worker
protection, emergency procedures and hazardous material disposal.
Currently we are developing an online class for distant campuses and
remote NMSU facilities. New employees at these locations
should contact EH&S for the availability of this training.
All NMSU employees that work with hazardous
materials or equipment have training requirements in addition to
& HazCom Safety class. This includes regular, temporary,
part-time, post-doc, graduate, student and any other employees that
work in these conditions in instructional, research, shop, or
agricultural settings. If your group can not attend during the
scheduled times/dates, you may request a schedule modification (30 day
advance) for your
group (8 or more persons). Individuals and/or supervisors
should register individuals via the Safety Class Registration (registration link on the EH&S
Driving Class Spring schedule. The class is the National
Safety Council Driving Course which fulfills one of the NMSU
Policy requirements to drive a University vehicles (see policy:
vehicle use policy). For the convenience of faculty, students, and
staff, Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) provides this
training monthly during regular work hours and at least one evening
class (two night sessions/both required) each semester.
