General lab safety training on calendar for June 7 and July 14
The Office of Regulatory Compliance and Safety is offering an interactive, hands-on training course on general laboratory safety. Introduction to Laboratory Safety is a 3-hour seminar for laboratory users of all experience levels. The goal of the course is to provide an introduction to the basics of laboratory safety so that laboratory users can identify and reduce/eliminate the risk of exposure to chemical and physical hazards.
Topics covered in the course include proper laboratory attire, personal protective equipment (PPE), work practice controls, chemical classifications and segregation, use of MSDS, labeling and hazards of common laboratory equipment.
The Office of Research and Economic Development, together with the Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine, is committed to providing a safe working environment for all laboratory personnel and students. All univeristy personnel are encouraged to attend this free training. A certificate of attendance will be awarded after successful completion of the course.
