Annual Lab Safety Review Training – In Person

September 21, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


All laboratory personnel are required to take Annual Laboratory Safety Training one year after taking Introductory Chemical Hygiene and Lab Safety training to refresh and review the expected laboratory practices at UWM. This hour-long training is a review for those who have already taken Chemical Hygiene Plan and Laboratory Safety Training.

The Review is intended for those who handle chemicals and equipment in a UWM laboratory, studio or shop.  This includes PIs, TAs, RAs, Lab Managers, Lab Volunteers, SURF grant students and High school volunteers.

The University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee Laboratory Safety Refresher is intended to cover and provide guidelines for individuals working in the campus laboratory community. The training describes policies, hazard risk assessments, procedures, equipment, personal protective equipment, and work practices that are capable of protecting laboratory personnel from the health hazards in laboratories.

Training dates for Review training and for the initial CHP and lab safety training can be found in the Event section on the University Safety and Assurances (US&A) website.

The Principal Investigators, laboratory supervisors, or individual departments must prepare a Laboratory Specific Safety Plans as well as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Highly Hazardous Chemicals or Equipment used their laboratories. They may choose to customize the Word.doc version to suit their individual needs and more accurately portray the hazards and controls of their laboratories or they can create their own version if it effectively defines the hazards and controls for their laboratory.

This training will review the necessary safety practices and expectations. It also offers you an opportunity to seek answers to any safety questions you may have.

This training will inform you of the CHP elements, proper use of the CHP for safety in the lab, and how compliance is achieved. General lab safety information and procedures will be discussed.
