Chemical Safety Training for University Research Laboratories: Pilot Study

High profile cases of laboratory injury and even fatality draw attention to an alarming issue on many university campuses: lack of strict adherence to safety protocols. This study compares the efficacy of two methods of delivering annually-required training for chemical laboratory safety and hazardous waste disposal: in-person and online. Participants complete a survey instrument to test knowledge retained, and results will be compared to inform future training delivery.
