Safety Fair helps employees meet requirements

2/22/2008 - Vanderbilt University Medical Center's staff Safety Fair will be held Feb. 28-29 and March 3-4, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., in the Learning Center in Medical Center North's round wing.

Work-safety training is among the annual requirements that staff must complete before job performance evaluations are considered complete. Much hinges on completed performance evaluations, including annual salary adjustments (made in July) and Medical Center accreditation.

A poster spelling out the annual staff requirements is available on the VUMC Learning Center Web site — go to www.vanderbiltlearningcenter.org, click Required Training, then Safety Fair, then Poster and List of Annual Requirements.

VUMC Occupational Health Clinic personnel will be on hand at Safety Fair to administer TB skin tests and any other required immunizations.

In addition to work safety, all VUMC staff need to complete separate training modules about patient privacy, conflict of interest and standards of conduct. There are additional requirements for staff who work with patients and staff who work in laboratories. Anyone who's unsure what's required should ask his or her supervisor.

Many requirements can be completed or partially completed online. Part of the annual work-safety requirement can be completed at www.vandysafe.com. Others can be completed at www.webinservice.com/vanderbilt/ and www.webapp-a.mis.vanderbilt.edu/coi (conflict of interest).
