Lab Safety Training

The Hunter College Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) has hosted several in-person sessions each semester for mandatory laboratory safety training and radiation safety training. This will hold true in coming semesters for Radiation Safety training.  Laboratory Safety training will continue to be web-based,as it has been for the past year and a half. This has proven to be much more convenient and efficient for all involved.

Safety Training Classes:

Safety training is mandatory for new personnel, current personnel who have never received training, and those who have not attended a training session in the last three years.  This includes all principal investigators, researchers, teachers, lab technicians, graduate students, college assistants or any employee who may come in contact with chemical or biological substances.  

  • lab safety
  • regulatory compliance
  • disposal of regulated substances
  • emergency response procedures
