Safety Training

Anyone working or conducting research in the Physics and Astronomy Department (including faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers) must complete required university training and annual departmental safety training.

Training includes all staff of centers and shops. The following do not require training: retirees and those not physically working on campus (i.e. Fermilab). For questions about requirements or other exceptions, contact Safety Committee Chairs Greg Snow (gsnow1@unl.edu) or Don Umstadter (donald.umstadter@unl.edu).

All university personnel are required to take Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) core training: Core-Injury and Illness Prevention Plan and Core-Emergency Preparedness. Additional training needed can be determined by visiting the EHS website on training.
