Lab Safety & Chemical Hygiene Program

Training Program

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).
  • The Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool hazard assessment review and PPE training.
  • A laboratory-specific safety orientation, including CHP/SOP review, etc.

Additionally, there are site and hazard specific trainings required on an as-needed basis. These include biological safety, radiation safety, laser safety, 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.
