Tarabara Research Group


Laboratory safety


Every new member of our research group must download and read CEE Safety Manual.

Note that our laboratory is biosafety level 2 (BSL-2).

Prior to beginning experimental work in the laboratory:

  1. All new lab members have to complete the following Environmental Health & Safety online training courses:
    • Chemical hygiene, laboratory safety, and hazardous waste
    • Compressed gas cylinder safety
    • Laboratory security awareness
    • Biosafety principles
    • Hazard communication
    • Medical waste management
  2. All group members must take lab-specific training (see Lab- specific training checklist and Biological safety site-specific training record).
  3. Depending on the nature of your research, you may also need to take other courses (this needs to be discussed with your adviser). Examples of additional safety courses include:
    • Autoclave safety
    • Biological substance shipping
  4. The following documents should be handed over to Mrs. Margaret Conner (one set of copies) and Dr. Tarabara (another set of copies):
