SRS has developed a series of safety sheets. Safety sheets are designed to improve the awareness of employees at the University of Oregon by providing information on specific hazards, environmental health issues, and best practices. Each page gives a brief overview of important information, contacts, and best practices related to the topic. The sheets can be utilized for new employee safety orientation packets, as additional written material for training, or as a quick reference for basic questions. Refer to the bottom of each sheet for the contact information of the SRS professional who can answer additional questions.
The units of Safety and Risk Services provide training to the University community regularly on a variety of topics to increase awareness and skills related to health and safety:
In addition to regular course offerings, requests for training for departments, schools, colleges or student groups are welcome. Registration for these types of training is available on MyTrack.
