Biosafety for Study Team Members



Full course description


Due to current conditions with the COVID-19 outbreak, our in-person sessions have moved to a virtual format. At the end of the on-line training, you will be able to attend a virtual session. After the virtual session, you will then book an appointment to attend a brief (10 minute) in-person session in which you must demonstrate your ability to clean up a spill. Components must be completed in order. All components and registrations are within this Canvas course.

This course provides new UBC Biosafety Permit Study Team Members with an overview of UBC policies and procedures for working with biological materials, including project risk assessment, exposure control and emergency procedures.   A thorough understanding of the course material aids in the prevention of laboratory accidents and laboratory associated infections.



This course consists of 2 parts:

• Part 1: 9 x 15 minute online modules, each followed by a quiz

• Part 2: A 3-hour in-person session with a written exam.
