In collaboration with your supervisor, referencing your work spaces' Workplace Hazard Assessment (WHA), you can use this electronic tool any time to assess your current initial safety training needs, whether you've been a UConn Husky for 30 years or 30 seconds. Watch this video for a quick overview of how to use the WHA and ESTA tools.
If you are a new member of the community, welcome to the University of Connecticut. As a new faculty, staff, or student employee, you may be required to complete mandatory safety training prior to beginning certain work activities. As early as possible, meet with your supervisor to complete the safety assessment below. This will ensure that you know what hazards to expect in your new work environment and which training you should take with EHS to prepare you to enjoy a safe work life at the University.
If you're a current UConn employee (faculty, staff, or student), you may need to periodically reassess your training needs as your duties or work spaces change. Please see this tool as a starting point, and be sure to connect with EHS staff if you have questions about follow-up or recurring training requirements relevant to your position. We're here to help.
