Online Training Banner

EHS offers training online and in-person to employees, students, and visitors who will be working in campus laboratories. These training modules are intended as a general overview of the topic, and hands-on, job-specific training is to be provided by your direct supervisor.

Note that NEW employees, students, and visitors are asked to attend in-person laboratory safety training. Future refresher training may be completed online after the first in-person class.

IMPORTANT TRAINING UPDATE- UMB training is moving from SumTotal LMS to Percipio LMS.

[12/2/22]  EHS is working with HR partners to provide access as soon as possible. There is a delay in the process and assignment may not appear until sometime in January 2023. If you have an urgent need to complete training, reach out to eLearning@umaryland.edu

EHS training for new hires is conducted in-person. To register for in-person training, please go to https://www.umaryland.edu/ehs/training/laboratory-safety-training-schedule/.

Why Training Is Required

What training is required?

Determining which training courses are required, recommended, or optional for your job duties can be complicated, as well as knowing how frequently you should refresh these modules. See this page for more information on requirements.

Other safety, but not necessarily lab-related, training courses are offered through the Emergency Management Department.
