The reframing of Research Safety Affairs as a department that provides critical support to researchers has been a focus area of upper research administration. Changes made over the last two years in regards to research infrastructure have aimed at making research safer while reducing the administrative burden of compliance. This has included the creation of new procedures, safety training resources, an online system health and safety documentation, and other efforts intended to promote continuous improvement.

During this presentation, the recent research safety changes in procedure will be discussed. Mr. Barton will also be introducing to the campus the mock lab training facility that has been assembled to better prepare our diverse research population for a safe and productive work experience at UTHSC.  

Please register for the session and for HR128 credit through the UTHSC training calendar.
