Lab Safety Training on Blink


All UC laboratory workers are required to complete the UC Laboratory Safety Fundamentals online course.

At UC San Diego, all laboratory workers are required to complete 2 web-based courses on UC Learning Center to meet UCSD's basic lab safety training requirement:

  1. UC Laboratory Safety Fundamentals, with refresher training required every 3 years
  2. Annual Laboratory Hazards Training, with refresher training required annually

Additional training requirements apply at UC San Diego.

Worker, as defined in the UC policy, is an individual who actively performs work functions with hazardous materials or equipment in a laboratory/technical area. A “worker” may be faculty, staff, student volunteer assisting in a non-academic class, or visitor/visiting scholar.
