What's NEW on our Safety Mission?

Annual Safety Training Renewals! --> Due by June 28th.   June is the time for All of Us to complete our Annual Safety Training, which for most of us includes the HSI "Purdue - Lab Safety Fundamentals" module, plus the PPE & BEP Certificates.  These all need to be submitted to Paul Bower in either digital or paper forms.  For those who do not work with chemicals, the only requirements are the BEP and the Hazard Communication Awareness Training.  Use the "Safety Training Tab" at top-left to access these training modules and for additional information.
