Training

Required for work with potentially biohazardous material

Safety is the top priority for everyone working with potentially hazardous biological agents.

Upon joining a laboratory

  • All individuals must review the laboratory biosafety manual and chemical hygiene plan prior to beginning work.
  • Each individual working in the lab must sign and date the biosafety manual and chemical hygiene plan to document that they have been trained.
  • Each investigator must provide hands-on training commensurate with risk.

Biosafety seminars and supplementary training

Please contact the biosafety officer to schedule a time to discuss training that your college, department, or individual lab may need. If you are an incoming graduate student or postdoctoral fellow, the University encourages you to contact the biosafety officer, too.
