All individuals conducting research or working in research labs in any capacity at UMass are required to take lab safety training through the UMass Environmental Health and Safety Office, and to renew the training on an annual basis. Training session schedules can be found on their website. While the initial training is in person, renewals can be done online.
All lab personnel must take the Laboratory Safety, Fire Safety, and Biological Safety training. To enroll in a training, please contact Cole Tucker at (413) 545-4034 with the date and time of the training session you would like to attend as well as the name of the lab you belong to and your UMass ID number. Also contact Cole if you are planning on working with Radiation or recombinant DNA.
