There’s no silver bullet I know of, but something that’s been particularly effective for a few departments here has been tying building access to training completion. In those departments, researchers’ cards aren’t activated for the building until they turn in training documentation. In many departments, researchers are given a form with a list of required trainings and trainings that may be required for their lab, so it serves both as documentation and information. This does still require a fair amount of manual work, but it is very effective at catching everyone who needs training.

Hi All,


I hope that you are all doing well and staying safe.  I’m curious what other folks at University’s are doing to catch all of those at their institutions who are in need of lab safety or other training.  We have a mechanism whereby training managers for departments have to assign individuals to particular EH&S required trainings, and it seems like there has to be a less manual way of doing that.  Please feel free to contact me offline if you prefer and thanks in advance for any solutions you can offer.


All the best,
