In-person training for large groups provided by EH&S including Laboratory Safety, Clinic Safety, Radiation Safety and Shipping Training has been suspended. Please note most training is available online via Learn@Work. Special arrangements can be made for individual training wherein effective distancing and infection prevention can be implemented.

NOTICE: Radiation Safety has transitioned to “On Demand” exam proctoring.  No more having to wait for pre-scheduled sessions to be able to take an exam – exam sessions could  now be held any day of the year!  To sign up for the Radiation Safety and/or PET exam, please visit https://radsafety.wustl.edu/myrad and click “Training & Exams”.  Through this page you will complete a registration request which will be directed to the Health Physics contact (HPC) for the authorization you will work under.  This HPC will contact you to set up a time to proctor your exam(s) that is mutually agreeable for you both.  

As a part of EH&S commitment to sustaining a culture of safety on campus, we provide the following web-based and in-person training courses.
