NWI Safety


TTU-NWI takes the safety of our team very seriously.

NWI is committed to the safety and well-being of their employees,  students, and customers as our number one priority.  As part of Texas Tech University's EH&S safety protocol for all NWI facilities at Reese Technology Center Campus, it is mandated that all persons utilizing NWI space must pass the appropriate safety courses/modules in accordance with TTU's OP 74.13. At a minimum, all Parties, including all participating faculty, staff and students, must complete the five safety modules listed below  as well as sign the NWI Facilities Use Agreement.

Safety training will now be managed with a new online system called Vivid Learning Management Systems. A summary of all offered training and instructions for enrolling in training can be found on the EH&S Safety Training Website.

After enrollment, you will receive an email from customerservice@learnatvivid.com with a link to take the training. The new safety training will be on a recurrent basis and reminders of expiring training will be sent out regularly.

If you have questions, please contact our office at safety@ttu.edu.
