For more information on what trainings are available and which departments are impacted, review EH&S’s training charts.

EH&S has created two training curricula to comply with the new OR-OSHA Heat Illness Prevention standard, which requires training for both affected employees as well as their managers. This standard requires training prior to working in an environment which has an apparent temperature of 80 degrees F or more. Since temperatures in our region can often exceed an apparent heat of 80 degrees F, it is recommended that the training be assigned and completed before temperatures rise.
