Fundamentals of Biosafety Training - one time 

Course description: Introduction to safe practices for handling biological agents. This course is required prior to working with recombinant or synthetic DNA, infectious materials, infectious animals, human clinical samples and other research-related projects that require BSL-2 or enhanced BSL-2 containment practices.

This course covers:
• The risk assessment process
• Biosafety levels and their best practices
• Engineering and administrative controls, as well Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
• Disinfection methods and biohazardous waste disposal
• Accidental spill and exposure response
• Shipping and transporting biological materials

This is a one time training requirement for those working with infectious or potentially infectious biological materials.

Aerosol Transmissible Diseases Training

 

Aerosol Transmissible Diseases Training - Initial 

Course description: This course complies with Cal/OSHA Title 8, Section 5199 ATD training requirements and is required for researchers working with the agents or agents plus procedures given in the regulations: https://www.dir.ca.gov/title8/5199d.html

Examples:
• Cytomegalovirus, human (viral production, purification, or concentration)
• Epstein-Barr virus (viral production, purification, or concentration)
• Escherichia coli, shiga toxin-producing only (aerosol generation or high splash potential)
• Hantaviruses (serum or tissue from potentially infected rodents, potentially infected tissues, large quantities or high concentrations, cell cultures, experimental rodent studies)
• Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2
• Salmonella spp. other than S. typhi (aerosol generation or high splash potential)
• Salmonella typhi (activities with significant potential for aerosol generation, large quantities)
• SARS coronavirus (untreated specimens, cell cultures, experimental animal studies)
• West Nile virus (WNV) (dissection of field-collected dead birds, cultures, experimental animal and vector studies)

The course covers:
• Transmission risk from small particles or droplets containing aerosol transmissible pathogens 
• Identification of work requiring aerosol safety procedures 
• Use of controls to reduce risk of exposure to aerosol transmissible pathogens and disposal of waste 
• Response to an aerosol transmissible pathogen exposure

This is an annual training requirement.
Initial and refresher training courses are available online; you must complete the initial before the refresher course.
You will be enrolled to complete the online refresher training in one year after completing the initial.
