I would love more information on this! We have never had any safety training for anyone. I would like to get training going for faculty and student TAs and students doing research. We are a small 4 yr school. We have of course the short lab safety on the first day and signed safety sheets for the undergrads.
I have become the EH&S department by default in our department. Our department covers geology, biology, chemistry, physics and anthropology…. The biologists and chemists work with quite a few nasty chemicals. Some in geology but not so much.
Love to have some input on training programs.

I’m really enjoying the feedback so far- thanks to all who have responded, and for those who may still- I appreciate this forum!
It appears that the Hill/Finster text gets is getting popular- I’m hoping to use it too. Good job, Bob & David .

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.
