Online Safety Training Overview

The University of Dayton requires* that certain faculty, staff and students be specifically trained before being authorized to perform certain tasks on campus. 

Much of the general and refresher training can be accessed and completed online.  However, depending on the task, additional initial in class training and/or demonstration may be required.  EHS/RM offers live training and demonstrations on a variety of safety items for large groups, as well as trainings that cannot be offered online.  Please contact EHS/RM office at 937-229-4503 (x94503) to inquire about live or group training sessions. 

Training is presented either as a video or powerpoint presentation, please watch and/or read through the presentation to learn about each particular type.  For documentation or insurance purposes, online training must be documented.  Generally, this is accomplished via a quiz that is submitted following the online presentation.
