Safety Training

It is LBNL policy, and the federal law requires, that all staff, participating guests, visitors, and others who perform work at, or for, LBNL receive appropriate training necessary to protect their health and perform work in a safe and environmentally sound manner. This training must include information regarding job hazards, possible health effects, and required work practices and procedures.

A mechanism to identify which safety training courses are required or recommended, is to complete a Job Hazards Analysis (JHA) with your Supervisor/Work Lead before starting work. Training required by the JHA will not show up on your Training profile until your JHA has been reviewed and Authorized by your Supervisor or Work Lead. Work may proceed with the completion of the required training and subject to additional controls specified on the JHA.

Access your training profile

Employees can access their training profile through the JHA system. After logging in, click on My Training Profile in the left navigation to review any required, recommended, or completed training. Supervisors can access their employee's training profile as well.
