Laboratory Standard Training (a.k.a. CHP Training)

Laboratory Standard training (includes hazardous waste) is the State of California and CSUN mandated safety training that applies to all principal investigators and research associates who work in a research laboratory. Research associates are defined as under/graduate students, unpaid/paid persons, volunteers, or any other designations.

Initial In-classroom Training: All new principal investigators or research associates must attend before taking the Annual Refresher Training. Time: 60-70 minutes. You must attend one of the training sessions being offered during the semester.

 


Annual Refresher Training: self-administered, on-line course for all principal investigators and all returning research associates. You must have attended the initial in-classroom training session in person for the refresher to be valid. NOTE: Principal Investigator is still responsible to provide lab-specific hazard trainings to his/her research associates and document the trainings.
