Boston University Training Program Overview

Boston University (BU) and Boston Medical Center (BMC) recognize the importance of safety training as a critical element of a comprehensive safety program designed to prevent work-related injuries and exposure. In accordance with regulatory requirements and policies at BU and BMC, faculty, students, staff, and visitors in laboratories must complete a variety of trainings that address hazardous materials in the workplace. These requirements are mandatory for all individuals who work with hazardous materials, including biological, chemical, and radiological materials, as well as those who conduct physically hazardous procedures.

The training requirements are outlined in various safety manuals, including the Biosafety Manual, the Chemical Hygiene Plan, and the Exposure Control Plan. They are also listed on the Research Compliance office training website.
