Lab Safety Training for Researchers
These required trainings help those conducting research at the UW to comply with external sponsor and internal requirements and/or to reduce risk to the researcher. The required trainings depend on the nature of your research. Your PI or lab manager is responsible for telling you which trainings are needed and documenting it. If your research takes you in an unexpected direction and you require a safety training that no one else in your lab has completed, your PI must complete the new training too.
