All personnel (faculty, full-time staff, students participating in research, and students employed in animal care facilities) must:
- Complete CITI online training modules (once every 3 years):
- Working with the IACUC
- Working with (specific species module if available, e.g. Wildlife, Hamsters, Mice, Zebrafish) (this is not required for student care workers).
- Complete Mark Ross’ lab safety seminar (once a year)
- Be cleared by a Health Assessment Questionnaire (confidentially reviewed by a health professional) (one-time only, unless personal circumstances/exposures change)
Students participating in a class laboratory exercise are exempt and expected to be briefed on relevant health and safety by the faculty of the course. For example, please provide students with the basics of what IACUC is, responsible use of animals, and hazards for the lab exercise (e.g., potential allergen exposure to mice, or potential microbial contact with handling fish or amphibians). All of this may be done by giving them the IACUC Info sheet.
