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.
