The sewer and stormwater training covers the basics of UNR's permits and procedures for compliance with permits addressing sanitary sewer discharges and storm water protection. This includes the major requirements under our existing permits.
This training is required for all faculty, staff, graduate assistants, student workers, and volunteers who work in or supervise individuals who work in the laboratories located in the buildings listed on the University of Nevada, Reno's sewer effluent discharge permits. In addition, it is recommended for all employees since these restrictions apply campus wide.
The University of Nevada, Reno Large Structures Laboratory and the Earthquake Engineering Center offer a combined 18,000 sq. ft for experimental research in large-scale structural systems.
The nature of the hazards presented in these unique environments necessitate specific precautions, awareness, and training. Anyone who wishes to work in the structures laboratory must attend this orientation course prior to commencing to do so.
Formaldehyde training is required for personnel who are exposed to formaldehyde in work places other than research laboratories that utilize hazardous chemicals. Personnel who work in anatomy, histology, and pathology laboratories are required to receive training annually. Personnel who have exposure to formaldehyde only in research laboratories are not required to attend Formaldehyde Training but are required to attend Laboratory Safety Training.
Refresher training is required annually.
