Training with Environmental Health and Safety

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) offers several courses for training the Case Western Reserve community in safe practices. This section describes each of these courses and how to register. EHS keeps a record of all employees attending EHS-sponsored training. Some courses are open enrollment, however, many are required only of certain employees to meet regulatory requirements. Some courses are required annually, and others are offered only upon request.

You can now check your training online. Find out how to register for EHS courses by visiting the page for the training you need, or by calling the EHS front desk at 216.368.2907.


Supervisors may contact EHS with questions or to request employee training data. Supervisors are responsible for being aware of training required by law for their employees and to keep appropriate records. Supervisors also are responsible for making arrangements for their employees to register for and attend required training. You also are responsible for making arrangements for their employees to register for and attend required training. Some courses are mandatory, and employees who miss required training can cause regulatory liability for the university and their supervisor.
