At Columbia University Medical Center, education in safety and compliance begins on your first day of work and continues for as long as you're with us. The training you receive depends on your role and the risks you may encounter.
Campus Life Safety and Regulatory Compliance coordinates annual trainings for frontline CUMC Facilities Management and Campus Services staff. You can expect trainings to cover both federally mandated subjects, like those required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as important topics in health care and higher education. The training program also includes fire safety, hazard communication, and emergency preparedness and response. Trainings are typically presentations followed by a discussion to ensure you are ready to make key decisions throughout your normal work days and in emergencies.
Our annual trainings include:
- Asbestos maintenance
- Customer service communications
- Emergency management
- Energy and sustainability management
- Fire/life safety
- Hazard communication
- HIPAA compliance
- Occupational injuries and illnesses
- Personal protective equipment
- Working at heights
Please direct any questions about trainings to your supervisor.
