Scope

The training programs are offered in a variety of forms, including online with tests, in-person, and on-the-job training, and cover the entire spectrum of potential hazards that may be present in a workplace.

Examples of training programs include:

  • Laboratory Safety Training that must be completed by all personnel (faculty, staff, students, trainees, visitors) who will work in a research laboratory with any chemicals or biological agents.
  • Agent-Specific Training that must be completed by all personnel who work with infectious microbiological agents.
  • Hazardous Materials Shipping Training that must be completed by all personnel prior to shipping any hazardous materials or dangerous goods.
  • BSL-3 Training that must be completed by all personnel (faculty, staff, students, trainees, visitors) who will work with BSL-3 agents.
  • Select Agent Training that must be completed by all personnel (faculty, staff, students, trainees, visitors) prior to receiving privileges to order, store, or use select agents.
  • Additional Training: special biosafety, species-specific, and technical training for some or all personnel related to your research activities may be required by Environmental Health & Safety, theĀ Research Occupational Health Program, and/or the institutional oversight committees (e.g., Institutional Biosafety Committee, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, Radiation Safety Committee, Laboratory Safety Committee). These training requirements are dependent on the experimental methods and conditions described in your protocol.
