Safety Training

State law and university regulations require that all students and employees working in our laboratories be given certain types of training, and that faculty document the fact that such training was given. You must take care to complete the required training checklist and then give it to the head or safety contact person in the lab where you will be working. It will be kept on file there. The training sessions are given by Environmental Health and Safety, and you must attend this training. Additional types of training may be required depending on the kind of work you will be doing. Speak to the safety contact person in the laboratory where you will be working to find out the specifics

Students working in a lab must discuss safety training as part of the application process. The faculty acknowledges when signing the Research Plan that they have discussed safety training with the student, that the student has or will complete the training within the allowable time, and that the appropriate records are kept of the student's training.
