Training Requirements

All faculty, students, employees, visitors and volunteers must have attended MAE Annual Safety Training. 

  • To sign up for MAE Annual Safety Training, please select a date from the "Upcoming Safety Events" section above, and follow up with the registration process. Those are usually announced on a quarter-to-quarter basis so you could also reach out to for additional information, or if the section is empty. 

In addition, faculty, students, employees, visitors and volunteers in research laboratories are required to complete the following training prior to performing unsupervised activities. 

  • UC Laboratory Safety Fundamentals (Initial Training) eCourse.  Thereafter, a refresher course is required every three years. 
    Note that undergraduate students do not have automatic access to the Learning Management System (LMS) and will need to send a request to, or the department safety coordinator, to be granted such.
  • Site-Specific Safety Training (orientation for a new member, and annual refresher thereafter).  This training informs members about emergency procedures, injury reporting, hazards of workspace and equipment, engineering controls, personal protective equipment (PPE), standard operating procedures (SOPs), storage/use/spill response/disposal of hazardous materials, and lab rules.    
  • Lab Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT) is a tool for faculty to identify potential hazards and PPE requirements of his/her research labs and communicate them to all lab members. The faculty or lab manager adds a new member to the faculty’s LHAT roster.  After that, the member will receive an email notification to log into LHAT and complete the Hazard Assessment and PPE Training.  Then the member receives a list of proper PPE to be used in the labs. 

Faculty and lab managers may assign additional training that are applicable to the lab member’s functions and tasks.  A training matrix is available for reference.
