Workplace Safety at UC Berkeley
Workplace Safety Program Overview
California state regulations require every employer to establish, implement and maintain an effective injury prevention program. In August 2017, the University adopted a campuswide Workplace Safety Program that serves as the university’s central program for creating a safe and healthful work environment. Having one program for the whole university helps to improve access, consistency, and usability across all departments. EH&S is the responsible department for overseeing the campuswide Workplace Safety Program.
This one-time mandatory training for all campus employees (faculty, staff and student employees) provides valuable information on responsibilities, work-related injuries and illnesses, analyzing hazards and applying controls, what to do in a campus emergency, and resources available to you. You can access the online e-course here. (Reference: April 29, 2019 CalMessage)
