Hello Students, Faculty and Staff,
Don’t forget to attend the UA Employee Health Fair on October 8, 2014. Health fair participants can take advantage of the opportunity to receive free health screening tests. In addition, the University Medical Center will also be providing free flu shots to current UA employees, to their spouses, and to UA retirees.
Fume hood training online has now been uploaded and is available on the academy. If researchers/P.I.s etc. are interested in having this training assigned to their students or employees please feel free to contact Andrea or submit a request via the website.
-We also have UA-specific Chemical Safety Training available now.
– During recent inspections I noticed a large number of unsecured gas cylinders. Please check these and make sure everything is secure.
– If you need safety training for your students, please contact us.
Annual training is over. Please check your lists and if you are missing anyone let us know. We will check our records to make sure they have completed training.
Biosecurity: Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC) is life sciences research that, based on current understanding, can be reasonably anticipated to provide knowledge, information, products, or technologies that could be directly misapplied to pose a significant threat with broad potential consequences to public health and safety, agricultural crops and other plants, animals, the environment, materiel, or national security. The United States Government’s oversight of DURC is aimed at preserving the benefits of life sciences research while minimizing the risk of misuse of the knowledge, information, products, or technologies provided by such research.
