All students, volunteers, and staff members must receive the proper training BEFORE they begin working in the laboratory. The following information outlines minimum training requirements and additional resources:
- The “Laboratory Safety Fundamental Concepts” class is required for all students, volunteers, and staff in laboratories. Please see the EH&S training schedule for class dates and enrollment instructions.
- The “Laboratory Safety for Principle Investigators/Laboratory Supervisors” class is required for all PIs with laboratories. This class was specifically designed for faculty and supervisors in laboratory settings. Please see the EH&S training schedule for class dates and enrollment instructions.
- Given the importance of fire safety, all new students, volunteers, and staff members should receive fire safety training. EH&S has developed a number of resources to assist you such as:
For guidance on what training is required based on the type of research being conducted, please refer to the lab safety training matrix.
