Horticulture Safety Program
Updated Winter 2016
Your safety and all of those you are responsible for:
- Call 911 for an emergency.
- Contact Nancy Bremner (541-737-5475), Caroline Charlton (541-737-5477), or Lee Ann Julson (541-737-3464) for assistance.
General Safety and Office Safety
This is for all new students and employees that work or train within the Horticulture Department.
- Environmental Health & Safety provides a “General and Office Safety” PowerPoint. A good overview for new employees, as it instructs on general safety and office safety. Have them review the presentation and then submit the “Online Training Acknowledgement” form. EH&S will keep a record of the training.
- If a person is having health issues with how their desk and office is set up, learn more about ergonomics at EH&S.
All new hires and students that work in any of the Horticulture labs need to be safety trained.
- Go to http://oregonstate.edu/ehs/training/lab_safety_training and view each module, from 1 to 8.
- When the person has finished with all eight modules, have them go to: http://oregonstate.edu/ehs/training/lab_safety_training_acknowledgement and fill out and send this safety acknowledgement form. EH&S will keep records of this self-training.
This is a minimum of lab safety training that all new students and employees must do. It might be a good idea for all lab students and employees, even with years of experience, to review and be acknowledged that they have been trained.
For any additional training based on regulations for the materials and procedures in use by the lab, go to the EH&S website: http://oregonstate.edu/ehs/lab_safety, which has all of the forms, documents and manuals you may need as a Principal Investigator of a lab.
If you need any forms concerning safety, EH&S has the forms on this page: http://oregonstate.edu/ehs/forms, including the Acknowledgement of Safety Rules, Emergency Procedures and Hazard Communication Training form.
Principal Investigator Information
The EH&S site answers most of the questions you will have concerning your responsibilities if you’re a PI.
