7. How does the safety training that EH&S does, e.g. Lab Safety Class, Radiation Safety, CPR, etc. relate to a supervisor’s responsibilities for training documentation under the IIPP?

EH&S offers some safety classes on selected topics, but we don’t train the campus to be safe in a comprehensive way.  Although our training goes a long way toward meeting certain specific training requirements (e.g., Safety Data Sheets [MSDS], waste disposal, bloodborne pathogens, ergonomics) it is not worksite-specific and does not relieve supervisors of all their training responsibilities.
