Members of the ASU community should also consider participation in optional training programs where appropriate.


Responsibilities of Environmental Health & Safety

EH&S shall make required health and safety training available to the ASU community as required. Additionally, EH&S shall monitor trends in incidents, inspections, and employee complaints and update training as necessary or appropriate to address those trends and/or develop optional training programs that address trends and other EH&S issues. EH&S shall, when appropriate, provide guidance and information to the ASU community regarding what training is required, what optional training programs should be considered, and other appropriate guidance and advice regarding compliance with this policy.


Responsibilities of the Departments and Units

Colleges, departments, and units will assess their operations and identify EH&S training needs based on information provided on the EH&S Training Determination Table. Each supervisor will identify job-specific hazards and require that his/her employees attend EH&S training appropriate to the type of work they perform prior to assuming their job duties. Additionally, each manager or supervisor is responsible for the need to have employees participate in optional EH&S training programs and requiring applicable, updated training.


Responsibilities of Members of the ASU Community

Members of the ASU community are responsible for completing all EH&S training as required by their supervisors or PIs by either attending department specific and/or scheduled EH&S training or completing approved online classes.
