Laboratory Safety Awareness Training For Support Personnel

Program: 

Lab Safety

Course code: 

LS70

Course type: 

Online

Description: 

Some campus individuals occasionally need to enter a laboratory who are not lab workers, i.e., “support staff”. This online training describes the policies, procedures, personal protective equipment and potential hazards they need to be aware of. This training is not for lab workers - see instead SBHLSF-LS60-FUND-ECO or SBHLSF-LS-FUND-CO-ILT.

Addenda:   Note the following UCSB-specific information that are not within the training.

  1. Upon request, non-lab staff who occasionally need to enter labs, can receive a free lab coat and safety eyewear. Go to the graduate storeroom for the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry (Cabe Fletcher, room 1432, x-7187).
  2. Some campus labs may not allow any access by support personnel during certain operations.  Always ask if it is permitted to enter the lab at that time.

The UCSB Emergency Information Flipchart is posted in every lab.  Each lab has a “door placard” describing the basic hazards and some home phone numbers.
