Online health and safety training

Campus Environmental Health and Safety, in conjunction with K-State administration, developed a new plan for safety at K-State. One part of the plan is to make training available to all K-Staters asynchronously and online.

To access the training courses follow the links below. Make sure you take the training quiz or fill out the verification form at the end of the presentation. You will need PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer to view the following links. You can download it here.

The goals of providing these materials online are to reach a broader audience, improve safety practices, and comply with state and federal regulations.

Responsibility for environmental health and safety compliance is in the hands of every college and department on campus. For more information about training, contact Lisa Linck, Occupational Safety Manager, 532-5856,

Hazard Communication Training

Hazard Communication (HazCom) training is required for all employees who may be "exposed" to hazardous chemicals when working. "Exposure" or "exposed" under the HazCom standard means that an employee is subjected to a hazardous chemical in the course of employment through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, or absorption) and includes potential (e.g., accidental or possible) exposure. For more information, see the KSU Hazard Communication Program (pdf)


The Department of Environmental Health & Safety offers HazCom training monthly. Employees that completed HazCom training prior to September 2013 will need to attend a current course that includes GHS.

Training will be one hour and provided monthly in 011 Edwards Hall.

To view the training schedule go to Human Resources Learning & Development Events and select the desired course. Register for training through HRIS Self_Enrollment or email and include your name, department, employee ID number, course title and date desired.
