All personnel working in George Mason University laboratories are required to participate in Laboratory Safety Orientation, unless they work in a Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) laboratory in which case Biological Safety for BSL-2 Laboratories training is required in lieu of Laboratory Safety Orientation training.
Laboratory Safety Orientation will serve as the foundation for all participants who are new to George Mason scientific instructional or research laboratories. This course will instruct participants on Mason-specific laboratory safety policies and procedures, chemical safety and hygiene, risk assessment and management, waste management guidelines, and emergency response information. This course will also introduce participants to best practices for chemical and non-infectious biological material work within the laboratory as well as services available to laboratory personnel through the Environmental Safety & Health Office.
This training must be renewed annually. Once you have taken this training course, you may substitute Laboratory Safety Refresher training (described below) to meet the annual requirement. To register, click here.
