Complete the Safety Education Program

In order to complete the Safety Education Program, organization leadership must attend a Safety Education Officer Workshop and present the Safety Education Organization Training to their membership each fall. While the deadline for the 2021-2022 academic year is October 19th, 2021, it is recommended that organizations complete this program as early as possible in the fall semester.

  1. Safety Education Officer Workshop
    The President/Primary Contact must attend a Safety Education Officer Workshop. Presidents/Primary Contacts may attend this on behalf of more than one organization in which they serve as President or Primary Contact for. Multiple workshops are provided to fit your schedule; however, you only need to attend one per academic year. Be sure to RSVP and attend a Safety Education Officer Workshop as soon as possible. Workshops fill quickly and the President will need to coordinate Step 2 of the program before the stated deadline, so please plan accordingly.

    Given COVID-19, all Safety Education Officer Workshops will be offered virtually and in-person to allow students to select a format they feel most comfortable with. Information on how to RSVP and location information (Zoom or in-person) is included on the Safety Education HornsLink page under events.

    Any students in need of accommodations (e.g. closed captioning, etc.) to best engage during a Zoom meeting, can reach out directly to Jennifer Walker at safetyeducation@austin.utexas.edu.
  2. Safety Education Organization Training
    After attending the Workshop, the President, or Primary Contact that attended the Safety Education Officer Workshop, must provide the Safety Education Organization Training to the entire membership of each organization they represent. You may present this as part of a scheduled meeting that falls before the annual deadline, or create an opportunity to present it to your organization. The attendee will receive the presentation via email following the Workshop, but if you do not receive it within a week, please contact our team at safetyeducation@austin.utexas.edu. After presenting the Safety Education Organization Training to your membership, please notify our team within one week by completing the Safety Education Organization Training Completion Form.
