Seasons Changing: FALL (in love with safety)
We all have an obligation to cultivate a safe
environment for all people on our campuses. Working together, properly
trained, and informed of all applicable requirements are the best ways
to achieve this goal.
The Johns Hopkins Institutions strive to ensure
the Hopkins community is a safe, healthy, and environmentally responsible
place to work, study, and live for faculty, staff, and students. Members
of the Hopkins community must conduct operations in compliance with
applicable federal, state, and local registrations, and the Department
of Health, Safety, and Environment guidelines and standards. Both Federal
and State regulatory requirements and Johns Hopkins policies require
employees and staff to receive certain safety training and stay informed
about potential health and safety risks or hazards in the workplace.
All Safety courses registration and enrollments are available at Johns
Hopkins myJHU portal website.
If you have questions regarding requirements for
Safety Training please contact Health Safety and Environment (HSE) -

The Johns Hopkins Institutions require health
care providers to have annual influenza vaccination or possess an approved

Dual Use Research

In the federal policy's

fall under institutional DURC oversight. The current list of 15 agents
as well as a list of 7 categories of experiments or experimental effects
that would constitute DURC may be found at this website: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/hse/ire/regulations.html.
