General Lab Safety
Electrical Safety for Labs
This online training provides an awareness of basic electrical safety concepts involving household-level voltages (240 & below) that should be followed in laboratories to avoid electrical shock, damage to sensitive equipment, and the ignition of combustible materials. The training is NOT intended to cover high voltage operations.
General Laboratory Safety Training
This online training provides information regarding standard laboratory safety guidelines, laboratory signs and labels, personal protective equipment, working with biological/chemical/radiological materials, waste disposal, and emergency preparedness.
Dual Use Research of Concern Policy Overview
This online training was prepared by the NIH-Office of Sciences Policy and provides an overview and case study approaches for research that requires oversight of the life sciences Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC).
NIH Guidelines Overview
This online training provides an overview of the NIH Guidelines and is required training for anyone who works with recombinant or synthetic nucleic acids including transgenic animals and plants. Topics include NIH requirements, responsibilities, classification of experiments, and incident reporting.
Safe Handling of Human Cell Lines/Materials in a Research Laboratory
Choose your PI as the "Unit Head", if you are a PI choose yourself as the "Unit Head". This training provides information about regulations, an explanation of bloodborne diseases and how they are transmitted, procedures and equipment that prevent exposure, hazards and precautions for human cell culture work, Biosafety Level 2 requirements, and medical follow-up if exposure occurs.
This online training presents the basic concepts of biosafety, focusing primarily on planning safe experiments. Topics include: risk assessment, containment, biosafety levels, waste disposal, and emergency preparedness.
Chemical Management for Laboratories
This online training covers information on the OSHA Laboratory Standard which requires the development of a Laboratory Safety Plan specific for each workplace, how chemicals can affect you, ways to prevent or reduce potential exposure, proper storage, waste management, and emergency response.
Hydrofluoric Acid Training
This online training provides information on the safe use of hydrofluoric acid. Topics include: health hazards, symptoms of exposure, first aid and medical treatment, exposure control measures, personal protective equipment, campus policies related to HF and emergency response procedures.
Hazardous Materials Transport
Awareness Training for the Transport of Hazardous Materials
This online training provides a general understanding of hazardous material transportation regulations and how to apply them. Topics include: how to identify hazardous materials, emergency response, security awareness, and training compliance. Completion of the training does NOT meet all requirements for shipping hazardous materials.
Transportation of Infectious Substances, Category B
This online training provides information on how to properly ship infectious substances that qualify as Category B material. Topics include: classifying biological materials, selecting proper shipping names, selecting approved packaging materials, marking and labeling packages, and completing all required documentation. NOTE: To become certified to ship Category B infectious materials, you must notify BSS via e-mail that you have completed this training (and the prerequisite training) and provide the following information: name of the principal investigator, title and approval date of Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) registration, list of Category B materials expected to be shipped within the next 2 years, and list of anticipated shipping destinations.
Chemical Waste Requirements Training
This online training provides an explanation of requirements for collecting, storing, and disposing of chemical waste. Topics include: proper disposal procedures, storage requirements, safe handling procedures, and emergency preparedness. Successful completion of this course is recommended in order to request a chemical waste pickup by DRS.
General Laser Safety
This online training provides information about the classification of lasers, potential hazards associated with lasers, and ways to control the hazards. Topics include: hazard awareness, engineered controls, procedural controls, personal protective equipment, and emergency response.
Analytical X-ray Safety
This online training provides information about the operation of analytical x-ray machines, the health effects of radiation exposure, and how to reduce exposure. Topics include: hazard awareness, engineered controls, procedural controls, personal protective equipment, and emergency response.
Radiation Safety Annual Refresher
This online training provides an update on the campus radiation safety program for experienced users. Topics include: contamination surveys, the radiation safety web site, ordering radioactive materials, and radioactive waste.
Radiation Safety Awareness Training
This online training is for people whose duties require them to enter areas where radiation sources are used but who do not use radiation sources themselves. It provides the basic information necessary to identify radiation areas and protect oneself. Topics include: what are radioactive materials, identifying radioactive materials locations, and preventing radioactive contamination.
Radiation Safety Training
This online training covers information about regulations, potential hazards of radiation exposure, controlling hazards, and minimizing radiation exposure. Other topics include: the nature of radioactivity, health effects of radiation exposure, how to reduce radiation exposure, and administrative aspects of the campus radiation safety program.
Security Program Training
This online training is required for individuals whose duties require them to have unescorted access to radioactive quantities of concern. Only individuals who have been approved by the NRC background investigation process can have unescorted access to radioactive quantities of concern. Topics include: radioactive quantities of concern, personnel access authorization, access control, security program requirements and maintenance and testing of security systems. Training is required annually and must be documented.
Non-Laboratory Personnel Safety
This training provides information on the OSHA regulation, how chemicals enter into the body, how to protect yourself from the chemicals you use, how to use (Material) Safety Data Sheets, how to manage chemical waste, and emergency response.
Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens
This training provides information about regulations, an explanation of bloodborne diseases and how that are transmitted, procedures and equipment that prevent exposure, and medical follow-up if exposure occurs.
