After completing this portion of the Laboratory Safety Training series, trainees must also attend Laboratory Safety Hands-On Training. If research involves biological agents, Laboratory Biosafety Training is also required.
Safety Training is required for all those who work in or supervise work
in laboratories or stockrooms containing chemical, biological, or
radiological hazards. Tenure-track and/or research faculty DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND the hands-on portion of the course, but must complete the classroom portion.
The sewer and stormwater training covers the basics of UNR's permits and procedures for compliance with permits addressing sanitary sewer discharges and storm water protection. This includes the major requirements under our existing permits.
This training is required for all faculty, staff, graduate assistants, student workers, and volunteers who work in or supervise individuals who work in the laboratories located in the buildings listed on the University of Nevada, Reno's sewer effluent discharge permits. In addition, it is recommended for all employees since these restrictions apply campus wide.
The University of Nevada, Reno Large Structures Laboratory and the Earthquake Engineering Center offer a combined 18,000 sq. ft for experimental research in large-scale structural systems.
The nature of the hazards presented in these unique environments necessitate specific precautions, awareness, and training. Anyone who wishes to work in the structures laboratory must attend this orientation course prior to commencing to do so.
This training course serves as a supplement to the "Bloodborne Pathogens Training for Laboratory Workers" course. It is specifically intended for personnel who work with human cadavers, remains, or tissues, especially when the cadaver has not been embalmed or the remains or tissues have not been chemically “fixed.”
This guidance is not intended to cover situations where the body, remains, or tissue are known or suspected of containing infectious prions, such as when the deceased person was known or suspected of having a prion disease, to include neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
