WSU requires that supervisors provide safety training for their employees, beginning with the Safety Orientation Checklist. Also required are several basic safety training topics that CAHNRS Operations has worked with WSU Environmental Health and Safety to provide in the form of online training. Please assign your employees to review the appropriate online trainings and encourage them to ask questions.
To assist with WSU safety training documentation requirements, supervisors will be emailed once an employee completes each online training. This email can be printed and included in the employee’s departmental file. For non-online or non-CAHNRS training, please be aware that the supervisor is responsible for documenting their employee’s safety training.
Contact Dixie Kearney, Operations Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about CAHNRS online training.
