This Radiation Safety training will include principles of radioactivity, Federal and State regulations, University policies and procedures, waste management, and emergency response. This training session is intended for Faculty who plan to use radioactive isotopes in instruction or research, or who may need a refresher course on radiation or information about local procedures. This session is also intended for laboratory technicians or graduate students working in laboratories using isotopes.
Procedures for safe operation and use of lasers have been developed in consultation with principal users of lasers on this campus, and are consistent with standards set forth by the American National Standards Institute. This training seminar will present the institutional policies and provide guidance in their implementation. Persons presently working or who intend to work in facilities that use lasers, especially those classified by the manufacturer as Class 3 or 4, must attend this training.
This training should be attended by service personnel who work inside of laboratories that use or house radioactive isotopes or lasers. You will learn what radioisotopes and lasers are, where they are used and what dangers exist to you. You will also be shown signs and postings used in laboratories that use radioisotopes and lasers and what to do in the event of an accident.
Explains emergency and evacuation procedures in the event of a fire. This session will also provide information on fire alarm systems at BGSU and on the use of fire extinguishers on small fires.
This training is for BGSU Campus Operations employees only. You must have a valid Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to drive the bucket truck, although you do not need one to operate the bucket only (a CDL driver would need to accompany you to drive the vehicle). Operators that use bucket trucks face hazards such as falls, electrocutions and struck by hazards. OSHA requires that employees be trained to recognize hazards associated with their work and ways to prevent exposure. This training will discuss overall safety, personal protective equipment needed, truck inspection, set up and use, working from the bucket and handling emergencies (a combination of classroom and hands-on instruction). This training is designed to meet the OSHA 1910.67 Vehicle Mounted Platform standard and to minimize or prevent injuries and fatalities. Those who intend on driving the truck or operating the bucket need to attend this training session and will not be allowed to operate either until they have. This training is required every three years.
