Training is essential for achieving consistent safe operations in the workplace as well as reducing injuries and illnesses. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) stresses safety training in their regulations to ensure that personnel understand their responsibility and accountability for a safety and healthful workplace.
DOHS provides training at the NIH organization level to comply with Federal, State and Local laws, policies and regulations. Further training on Standard Operating Procedures in the laboratory is also required to ensure safety for personnel. As technologies in the laboratory evolve, training must match the situations.
Note: Training is limited to only NIH employees, contractors and special assigned personnel.To learn about these training programs, contact us at (301) 496-2960.
