In accordance with FESHM Chapter 2070, supervisors shall complete an Individual Training Needs Assessment (ITNA) for each employee under their supervision. They shall revise the ITNA on an annual basis, when job assignments, or job-related hazards change — whichever comes first.

Starting June 1, an individual’s ITNA contact is the only person who will be able to complete an ITNA. Your ITNA contact is the person who has the best knowledge of the tasks that you will be assigned and the hazards that you may encounter.  For Fermilab employees and contract employees, this is your direct supervisor.  For visitors or users, it is your Fermilab contact or the person assigned to perform ITNAs for your experiment.

When performing an ITNA, you will be prompted for your Services user name and password. If you are unable to perform an ITNA, your direct supervisor should be able to complete that task for you. In extremely limited and rare circumstances, a proxy can be given rights to complete ITNAs for those directly reporting to you. A TRAIN notification will be sent when an individual’s job changes, when a person moves to a new organization, or when the ITNA contact changes – prompting the need for a revised ITNA.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to your division safety officer or a member of the ESH&Q Training Group at
