EHS TRAINING ASSIGNMENTS & RECORDS

EHS and/or supervisors are able to assign EHS on-line training courses. If there is a topic of interest, contact your supervisor or EHS and that course can be assigned. For supervisors and those who have Administrative access to Safety Skills Learning Management System (LMS), there is a link in the right column of this web page providing basic instructions on how to use the LMS to view records and run reports on employees in their groups.  If needed, EHS can assist and answer questions on how to use the LMS upon request.

ABOUT THE ON-LINE TRAINING

Most of the on-line training classes can be completed within 30-45 minutes. The duration of each course appears on your assignment listing. If you are not able to complete the entire training course at one time, you are able to resume where you left off or start over from the beginning. After information is presented, there are review questions for that segment. If a question is not answered correctly, the information pertaining to the missed question is reviewed again before moving to the next topic.

Once a training module is completed you are able to print your own certificate. The LMS system keeps records of all the training courses that have been assigned and/or completed. Supervisors and EHS can view records, generate lists and reports to see which employees in their groups have completed their assignments. Automated e-mails are sent to notify the learner of a training course assignment and a reminder e-mail closer to the assignment due date.

Ask your supervisor when it is an appropriate time during the work day to take EHS training.

Please contact EHS by phone 810-766-6763 or e-mail rometsch@umich.edu  if you are experiencing any problems.
