At Texas Tech we require training updates every two years. It used to be every year for graduate students and every two years for faculty and staff, but we are moving to a more uniform system.

I've been doing my annual review of the regulations and I wanted to poll the audience here, particularly academic institutions, to see how often you require lab safety training?  Both Haz Com and the Lab Standard require it when you start and when new hazards are introduced, but have no requirement for refresher training.  Most of the other clients who use the management software we are moving to keep to that and only require it once.  I'm hoping to get a larger sample size by asking here.


Thank you,
