Biosafety Training Requirements

Training is a key element in the process of working safely with biohazardous materials. Basic training requirements at SBU are summarized below.

All lab personnel using or are exposed to biohazardous materials in BSL-1, BSL-2 or BSL-3 laboratories must complete these courses, one time:

  • ELS 003:Laboratory Safety - Biological Hazards
  • ENV 001:Hazardous Waste Management
  • ENV 005:Regulated Medical Waste

All lab personnel using or are exposed to biohazardous materials in BSL-2 or BSL-3 laboratories must also complete annually:

  • ELS 003:Laboratory Safety - Biological Hazards

or

  • ELS 020:Laboratory Safety - Biological Hazrds - Annual Refresher

All lab personnel working with human or primate source material (tissue, blood, cells, etc.) must also complete annually:

  • EOS 004:Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens

The listed courses are in basic lab safety principles and do not replace the need for training in the laboratory in safe performance of specific procedures and techniques that are unique to the experiments being performed.
