  • Training on various safety and environmental topics is available through Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Training is often required in order to comply with OSHA regulations and ensure that workers are well informed about workplace hazards (e.g., chemicals, bloodborne pathogens) and how to mitigate them. It is also necessary for certain regulated environmental practices (e.g., waste management) that would negatively affect the environment if left unchecked.

    EHS tailors the training to the needs of the trainees, including scheduling, format, class size, and details relevant to the topic. Call x5456 to inquire about upcoming training sessions or to request training.

    For those with busy schedules, Web-based training may be a better option. Currently Web-based training is available for Parsons employees who work with hazardous chemicals.

    Hazard Communication Training

    All New School employees who work with or around hazardous chemicals are required by OSHA to complete Hazard Communication training. Examples of employees who must complete the training are all faculty, student workers, and staff (e.g., technicians) who use the Parsons Academic Facilities Resources (AFR) facilities/shops and/or the science labs in Lang or University Center.

    Training must be completed through Canvas to ensure that a training record is generated. Contact EHS at perkinsk@newschool.edu to request registration for the training.

    Note: Part-time faculty are eligible for compensation for completing the training in accordance with their collective bargaining agreement.
