So, What Safety Training Do I Need? 

Go to the Chemistry Training webpage to determine which Dept. of Chemistry & University Safety Training requirements apply to you.

CHM 60500 -- A 7-Week Fall Safety Course required by several graduate degree programs, including those of Chemistry, MCMP, HSCI, and IPPH.

CHM 19700 -- Chemistry Freshman Honors Research.  Safety information and training requirements. 

CHM 49900 -- Special Assignments in Undergraduate Research (required to attend one CHP2 1-hour Live Safety Training session) 


Safety Seminars, Workshop, and video training opportunities

Lab Safety Fundamentals (LSF): The Huge LSF Version is only required the first year!  Afterwards, you take the shorter Modules, which must include the Lab Safety Refresher, the Slips, Trips & Falls training, and the Office Ergonomics training.  Of the remaining 7 other safety modules, you only need to do the ones that are relevant to your specific Group.
