The RIMS team is proud to announce a new online course available through RIMS: Laboratory Safety Refresher Training.
The Laboratory Safety Training is an annual requirement for all persons working in or supervising a laboratory at Boston University. Laboratory Safety Refresher Training is for researchers who have already attended EHS’s Laboratory Safety Training for Researchers within the last 24 months and are unable to attend a Laboratory Safety Training for Researchers session in person. You must first attend the initial Laboratory Safety Training for Researchers in person. Prior approval from EHS is required before counting Laboratory Safety Refresher Training as credit for training attendance. Contact EHS for more information.
