Training

BASIC - REQUIRED!     UPDATES [2004-2015]
Some training is transferable from main campus, see Chris, x216.
Awareness, common sense, not sleep deprived are 90% of safety.

 

ANIMAL TRAINING - required before all fish & amphibian work
      STARS: Animal Care and Use Program (VSC-PROG-0001)
      May 14th 2013 video by Stephanie Jensen on Fish and Frogs.

After doing Basic then do either IN LAB or IN OFFICE - required record to be filed in the lab safety binder for your lab/area. Your lab/area safety officer will do this training with you.

Why is safety training so boring?
- There are huge constraints on what MUST be covered in a training module. These standards are set by federal, state and local agencies.
We don't have the option of skipping them.

Chemical Safety Officers: you are responsible for in lab training, waste management, chemical inventory, quarterly inspections, yearly update topics
Animal Safety Officer: you are responsible for caring or ensuring care of animals used in your lab, If vertebrates, then there is a lot of paper work involved too
Radiation Safety Officer: - there are NO active rad licenses currently at Hopkins

BACK SAFETY - learn to lift the right way and avoid a life of back pain
BIOHAZARD - required of all people doing work with media for bacteria, viruses, etc.
