Contact

For more information about training, or to schedule a department-specific session, please contact the Environment, Health & Safety Training Program Manager at (310) 794-5669.

Requirements

Training requirements depend on the nature of work being done. Employees, students, and supervisors/Principal Investigators (PIs) should select training courses based on the types of hazards that may be encountered.  Everyone must be properly trained before beginning their work, given new assignments, or when new hazards are introduced.   

All laboratory personnel who work with or around hazardous materials are required to take the Laboratory Safety Fundamental Concepts class offered by EH&S, plus additional classes specific to the hazards of their laboratory. This requirement applies to visiting and/or part-time researchers. Laboratory safety training from other institutions or universities does not substitute for UCLA lab safety training.
