Hello Students, Faculty and Staff,
We are updating the lab registrations for all faculty research spaces. The lab registration form has been moved online and is available here. If you have not submitted an updated registration within the last 90 days, please do so. Beginning next week, we will be contacting anyone who has not submitted an updated lab registration to make sure our records are current.
As we expand the scope of the Laboratory Ventilation program to be in compliance with current standards, we have expanded the sections of Fume Hood Training. While this training is mandatory for all TAs and graduate students in the Dept. of Chemistry, it is strongly recommended for anyone working with a fume hood in a laboratory. Current sessions and registration information are posted on the Lab Safety Calendar.
In addition to the Fume Hood training (above), we are currently re-formatting the online training. This will not replace the in person training. Also be on the lookout for in person chemical safety training offered at the EHS conference room. You may sign up for this training via the website by using the Lab Safety Calendar.
Question for the students—-do you know where your SDS information is stored and how to access that information?
Attention all persons who work with radioactive sources, you must complete initial and annual training. Initial training is provided by the Skillport system. To sign up for training contact the RSO Hal Barrett by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the Training Request form at http://ehs.ua.edu/training/.
If you order a new laser, remember to register it so we can verify the space requirements for a new system. The registration is available here
EHS, ORC and the IBC are working together to raise awareness this month about issues related to biosafety, and increase resources available to the research community. In keeping with this, we recently posted a special newsletter about the National Biosafety Stewardship Month (see Sept 10 newsletter). Be sure to review this information and let us know if you have any questions.
