UNC Asheville is committed to creating and maintaining a safe, healthy and environmentally friendly workplace. As a result, training programs have been established to ensure compliance with OSHA, EPA, DOT and NRC regulations. Many of these training programs educate employees on how to perform tasks safely or use chemicals safely to prevent injury or illness. Through these training programs we minimize accidents, releases to the environment and prevent proterty damage.
Each Department Head is responsible for designating positions that require EHS training and ensuring their employees attend the specified training and observe established procedures. Using feedback from Department Heads, the EH&S staff monitors opportunities to develop new training programs and upgrade existing programs to reflect current state of the art and technology.
If you would like to register for any of these training classes or have an idea for a new training program, please contact the UNC Asheville EH&S Staff.
