Training Checklist

Use this checklist to determine what training classes are required. Each lab member should work with their PI and/or lab supervisor to help determine which additional classes are required.

Lab-Specific Training

All lab members are required to receive lab specific training before beginning work.  This training must be administered by the principal investigator (PI) or their designee (e.g. lab supervisor).

In order to help with this process, EHS provides a form to document this in the lab safety binder.  This must be completed for each lab member and kept in the lab safety binder for compliance.  Once lab specific training is completed initially, please use this form to track and complete refresher trainings.

Record of Training

All members of the lab must have training records in the lab safety binder.  In order to document these records, please print an online safety class transcript for each lab member and place a copy in the binder.
