Safety Training

Safety Orientation Video

This is our Safety Orientation Video that will be viewed by all new employee's during orientation.  In this video we take a comprehensive look at all the potential hazards that we have on our campus, where to find safety information, and what to do in case of a fire.  If it's been awhile since you've been in orientation take a 10 minute micro-break and look at our video.


As an employee of UTHealth, you are required to take an Initial Safety class and then an Annual Refresher one year from the date of your Initial Safety class if your job requires you to be in a lab or clinical space.
