Online Safety Training Overview

Systemwide Safety Programs offers various online safety training courses through SafeSchools (assigned by job code). These courses have been assigned to selected school-based and non-school-based employees to meet compliance with Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) mandated training requirements and to help reduce workplace and classroom injuries.

Mandatory Online Safety Courses

Available Recommended Online Safety Courses

The amount of time needed to complete each online course varies (13 to 30 minutes). OSHA/MOSH regulations require that time is made available during the workday for employees to complete required safety courses.

NOTE ON BROWSERS: Many employees are having difficulty loading the training because their schools are using older versions of Internet Explorer. If you have trouble loading the training, try using a recent version of Internet Explorer (versions 9 and above), Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox. Please also ensure you use a recent version of Adobe Flash Player (go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer to download, if necessary).

PLEASE NOTE: Registration in Professional Development Online (PDO) is no longer a step in completing SafeSchools online safety training. SafeSchools course assignments will no longer appear on your PDO homepage and course completion records will not be listed in your PDO transcript.
