Biosafety Committee: Training
The URI Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) provides comprehensive training for personnel conducting Biological Research. Annual training is required for all personnel working at Biosafety Level 2 or higher on approved IBC protocols. This training covers biosafety guidelines followed at URI, the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health (OSHA)’s Bloodborne Pathogen Program, disinfection and waste disposal procedures, and the use of biological safety cabinets.
For staff or students new to URI, the first training must be completed during an in-person session offered by URI EH&S. Annual refresher training can be completed on the CITI program.
