Hello Karen,

 

In the Chemistry Dept here, we have all faculty and staff (including students) do annual refresher training for all of our training modules except for First Aid Review, because that one basically tells them that they cannot do anything other than call someone who is first aid certified.  First Aid Review is every 2 years for faculty but every year for student workers.  We require them to review the CHP each year, as well.  This helps us ensure that the CHP is constantly being reviewed and updated by more than one person.

New York State Department of Labor/Public Employee Safety & Health Administration (PESHA) requires annual training for public institutions and employees. This requirement is more stringent than Federal OSHA.

Hi Karalyn and others!

 

As a major manufacturer of containment equipment in the US, FSI has several forms of safety training available for our products:

 

1)    Manuals

2)    PowerPoints

3)    Videos

 

We recommend looking at what media form is most appropriate for your facility and application and requiring the book/tutorial be reviewed at the first instance of a given item being used.  A sign-off after reviewing the material formalizes training and is a good demonstration that both the student and supervisor have spent time reviewing operation of the piece of equipment in question. 

 

I realize this approach, for us, is equipment-oriented, but we rarely have exposed individuals to this sort of training and have negative outcomes.  A similar approach could also be developed by yourself for procedures your students need to perform in their classroom pursuits.

 

I am certain that other safety equipment manufacturers also have such materials available. You can contact me for further details/information on this material.

I've been doing my annual review of the regulations and I wanted to poll the audience here, particularly academic institutions, to see how often you require lab safety training?  Both Haz Com and the Lab Standard require it when you start and when new hazards are introduced, but have no requirement for refresher training.  Most of the other clients who use the management software we are moving to keep to that and only require it once.  I'm hoping to get a larger sample size by asking here.

 

Thank you,
