Lab Safety Online Courses at YSU

This is an option for students who wish to learn more about lab safety. The first session is mandatory in order to participate in undergraduate research. The certificate is optional, but if you complete 10 hours of safety training online and in person, you will receive a certificate indicating that you are serious about lab safety and chemical hygiene. This is something you can add to your resume.

To get a certificate you must print out Lab Safety Certificate Documentation form and document all your training. When you are complete, turn this form into Tim Styranec and your quiz scores will be verified. A safety conscious student will complete as many modules as possible during their time at YSU.

NOTE: The Lab Safety Certificate Documentation form, plus other safety forms and documents are now located in the Penguin Portal. See the Students page for channel labeled "EOHS - SAFETY."
