Lab Safety Training

link to summer lab intern training

Laboratory safety training is required at the time of initial work in the lab and when new hazards or processes are introduced. Training is required for PIs, UCSC researchers, visiting researchers, and any other personnel working in the laboratory. Training must include physical and health hazards in the work area, along with applicable exposure control measures.

In accordance with the UC Office of the President Lab Safety Training Policy, all researchers must complete approved comprehensive lab safety training every three years. This lab safety training is currently only offered as an on-line course, "Laboratory Safety Fundamentals." This course can be accessed through the UC Learning Center. Note that students will need to complete and submit the form under the "Students and Affiliates" section on the Learning Center home page to obtain access to the course. Visiting researchers and other UCSC affiliates will need to obtain a UCSC Sundry account before accessing the training system.
