Safety training improves with new learning management system

Environmental Health & Safety is beginning a project to migrate online training content, course registrations, and training records to a learning management system (LMS) called Bridge. This migration is in an effort to streamline our training management processes and deliver more current and reliable on-line EH&S training content. Bridge will ultimately provide a single registration process for both on-line and instructor-led (classroom) courses and be a single source for all EH&S training records.  

The migration to Bridge will happen in three phases:

 

WA state measles outbreak: Got MMR?

In January, Governor Inslee declared a state of emergency related to a measles outbreak. As of May 17, there have been 78 cases in Washington: 71 in Clark County, four in King County, two in Pierce County, and one in Snohomish County. You can find out more about exposure locations here

If you have not received a measles vaccination – one component of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine – get both doses of the MMR vaccine as soon as possible.

 

2018 UW Work-Related Injury and Illness Summaries

The 2018 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 300A summaries of work-related injuries and illnesses are now posted on the Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) website, along with summaries for previous years. The summaries are required to be posted from February 1, 2019 through April 30, 2019 in a location where employees can easily see them such as on a department’s safety bulletin board or in a break room.
