There are a number of trainings required for all researchers at UCSB to complete before working in the laboratory. The three primary training requirements are:
- The Fundamentals of Laboratory Safety Class (live or on line).
- A hazard assessment review and PPE training via the Assessment online tool.
- A laboratory-specific safety orientation, including CHP/SOP review, etc.
All of these trainings should be documented on the Training Needs Assessment Form. This form also serves as a checklist to confirm that all needed trainings have been received.
