If you are taking the training from an on-campus computer, please follow the instructions below and go to: http://radsafety.mssm.edu/EHSATrain/EHSTrainWebISAPI.dll

* If you see yourself listed, click “Select” to the left of your name. Since your date of birth is not updated automatically, your default date of birth is set to 12/30/1899.

* If your name is not listed you will be brought to a new screen where you must complete a form with your employee information. (Note: Click on Arthur Tortorelli for supervisor. If you do not see your supervisor listed in the “Researcher/Supervisor” section, choose Dr. Davis.)

* If you see your name, but you believe that it refers to a different person who shares your name, then click the green “None of these (below) Match, I’m a New Worker” button and complete the form described in the bullet above.

  1. Once you’ve selected your name or created a new account, a training screen will appear with a list of courses. You are required to take the following two courses:

    A) All physicians are required to take the Surgical Fire Safety Course for Operators  (Course number LS 00). This link will take you to the video:

  2. Click through the presentation.
