Per UC policy the Fundamentals of Laboratory Safety orientation is required for all UCSB laboratory workers.

Topics covered in the training include: Hands-on fire extinguisher training; review of lab hazards and safe work practices relevant to chemicals, compressed gases, electricity, cryogenics, waste disposal, personal protective equipment, emergency response and campus safety resources. The class satisfies a number of basic regulatory training requirements, but is not a substitute for lab-specific training.
