On February 26, EH&S will be offering a webinar on lab safety and compliance for department staff who support researchers and principal investigators at the UW.
This training is designed for administrators, but it is open to all UW staff who do not work in a laboratory setting. The course provides background material on regulatory, policy and permit requirements, and addresses hazards and risk assessment in the laboratory to ensure lab safety and compliance.
The course covers how labs assemble a chemical hygiene plan by augmenting the UW Laboratory Safety Manual with laboratory-specific information. It also covers tools available to support safety practices, such as the MyChem inventory system, training records, accident reporting and maintaining safety documents. The instructor will discuss common safety issues in labs on our campus, and there will be time for Q&A during the last portion of the webinar.
To register for this course, please visit the Laboratory Safety and Compliance for Administrators course page on the EH&S website.
