Health and Safety training is organized into three tiers ranging from very general information to more specific training offered by Schools, departments, supervisors, managers and Principal Investigators (PI). The objective is to train employees and students on the correct safety practices for the work they will be doing. The General Safety Training module includes emergency planning information.
