Yale is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for the Yale community.  As a Yale employee, it is important that you understand that everyone shares responsibility for safety at Yale University.  Federal and State regulations require that employees with certain responsibilities receive training which must include information regarding job hazard, possible health effects, and required work practices and procedures.

To begin, each staff and faculty member should complete the University's "Training Requirements Assessment". This online survey is designed to help you identify and complete certain federal, state and University training and form submission requirements that apply to you.

Detailed information for EHS training courses is listed alphabetically by course title.  You may filter your findings by using the "Work Role", "EHS Program" and/or "Format" filter buttons below.
