Laboratory Safety Training

University employees, faculty, and students may attend DEHS's in-person Lab Safety Training to meet most annual safety-training requirements for those working with chemicals, hazardous waste, and bloodborne pathogens. This training is offered once a month. DEHS also offers a web-based version of lab safety training, called New Employee Safety Training, that can be taken at any time.


Registration for Lab Safety Training is broken into two segments.

  • Note: You must register for the second segment if your work involves any form of:
  • human blood;
  • human body fluids (such as spinal fluid, synovial fluid, vaginal fluid, sperm);
  • and/or infectious agents (such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, rickettsia).
  1. Chemical Safety and Hazardous Waste
  2. Biological Materials (Additional Segment)
