June 8, 2020 Personal Protection for COVID-19 – Protecting Yourself at Work: In preparation of returning to work on campus on June 15, Environmental Health and Safety has prepared a short presentation, "Personal Protection for COVID-19: Gloves and Face Masks." This presentation covers the basic use of gloves and face masks, as well as why N95s and other respirators are not recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If you have questions or concerns about material covered in this presentation, please email email@example.com.
April 8, 2020 Ergonomics at Home: Many of us that are now working remotely do not have a dedicated office space to use, but we still have the same needs for ergonomic comfort and support. If you bring work home with you, don’t forget to bring along the principles that keep you safe and productive in your workstation as well. A short presentation, Ergonomics at Home, is available from Environmental Health and Safety to provide ideas on arranging your remote workstation. If you have additional questions, concerns, or ergonomic ideas to share with others, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What training do I need?
Because we are frequently asked about our training courses and how to know which courses a particular person or job may need, we have prepared a matrix for supervisors to use as a guide in determining training. Based on answers to a list of questions, a training profile can be developed for each job. The matrix is intended as a starting point, and all of our general training must be accompanied by job/task-specific training from the supervisor or designee. Our website provides supplementary written materials on many topics, and we can provide supervisors with individual assistance upon request.
