Clinical & General Safety

Effective November 2019, Annual Hospital Training (AHT) will fulfill Environmental Health and Safety’s current initial and annual Clinical and General Safety Training requirements for staff who interact with bloodborne pathogens and/or hazardous chemicals. Moving forward, these staff only need to complete Annual Hospital Training.

Participation is required on an annual basis under OSHA regulations for all staff and students who do not work in a lab but do come in direct contact with patients; handle clinical specimens; routinely work in a clinical environment, or handle biological (red bag) waste. This includes graduate students, medical students, physicians, post-doctoral fellows, clinical and housekeeping staff.

Annual Hospital Training can be completed online in the WCM Learning Management System.
