Announcements & Events
University Chemical Hygiene Plan Training
In an effort to reduce the training burden on University employees and students Texas Tech University Environmental Health & Safety has combined the Chemical Hygiene Plan training into the ‘Safety Awareness’ training beginning March 10th. The ‘Safety Awareness’ training was developed to provide a general awareness training of occupational and environmental safety resources and programs at Texas Tech. This training should be taken annually to refresh employee’s knowledge of everything from fire safety to the environmental concerns of car washes on campus. If you have questions or concerns over this new training arrangement, please contact Texas Tech University Environmental Health & Safety at 742-3876 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
