At Youngstown State University,:


1.)    Chemistry students who conduct research and prepare chemicals for teaching labs undergo separate training from EOHS.  This training is about 1.5 to 2 hours.  Retraining is required each year.

2.)   The records are kept in chemistry, not EOHS.

3.)   We do not offer a full day training but would like to offer such a seminar.

4.)   A one semester hour course is not currently offered, but the University is developing such a course.


Please see the link below for more information about the Chemistry Department at Youngstown State University.

We are working on developing our system for a 2 year school.  What we did in the spring was all students in chemistry laboratory were required to complete the safety laboratory - which did include the new OSHA GHS information and sign a statement which was kept.

This topic probably has come up before, but I am interested in how other colleges & universities address UG lab safety training.  This would not be for  UGs in research labs, who may be getting a stipend or credit. 


1.       Do they attend the same training offered by EH&S for all lab workers?

2.      Do their names get entered in the same database?

3.      Does your institution offer a full day introductory lab safety seminar?

4.      Does your institution offer a one credit course for UGs in lab safety?



Thanks for the responses.  Let me know if you are a large school or small college- that may impact  answers.
