Environmental and Emergency Management

Training Schedule

Laboratory safety and compliance training is required annually by EPA, MADEP, OSHA and UMass Lowell for all laboratory personnel working in UMass Lowell laboratories. All faculty, staff, graduate students, teaching assistants, research assistants, researchers and other paid employees must annually attend one (two-hour) EEM-EHS lab safety and compliance training session.

This training is offered monthly. Those whose certification will expire can attend and keep their UMass Lowell lab privileges current. It is the responsibility of the faculty member who oversees the lab to assure that all workers are EEM lab-trained and certified.

Bloodborne Pathogen/Biosafety

The EEM-EHS Department offers OSHA-BBP/Biosafety training to employees, students, faculty and staff that will work in laboratories and potentially can be in contact with blood, body fluids, tissues, biopsies, cell lines, or other potentially infectious materials of human origin. These workers are considered at risk of occupational exposure to BBP and require training, adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) and to be offered the Hepatitis B vaccination at no cost to them. OSHA-BBP training is valid for one year and workers at risk must attend training annually.  No pre-registration is required

Meeting Place: University Crossing - room 158B

Instructor: Ruth Medina, Biosafety Officer
