Training

Safe practices are essential for research laboratories to ensure that intensive scientific inquiry goes uninterrupted. Laboratory safety begins with a comprehensive assessment of risks posed by research reagents and associated lab activities as well as an assessment of compliance issues associated with research conducted within that lab. An important component of this risk assessment process is the identification of laboratory safety issues that can only be mitigated through appropriate training.

Training courses are offered either online or as a classroom-based session. Please visit https://ehsa.uchicago.edu/training for online training courses.
