Environmental Health and Safety
October 19, 2015: Over the past year, a team at EHS has been working to develop a Hazard Communication Program for the University of Idaho, a program that is required by State of Idaho standards. Our program will cover all areas of the university, including laboratories, construction and maintenance activities, field work, etc., where chemical hazards may be found in the workplace. There are some exceptions to this as detailed in the FAQs and the resource sections available to the different user groups that you will find in the webpages. We have revised these Hazard Communication webpages, published the new policy in the APM (35.60), and developed an online course in NetLearning@uidaho, "Hazard Communication for Supervisors," to assist supervisors in implementing the program in their areas. All items are now live except the course, which we expect to be available in the next week or two. We will put out another announcement when the course is ready.
