Dear Campus Researchers,

Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, EHSO will be moving all live safety training courses to BioRaft.  EHSO will not jeopardize your safety or the campus community.

At this time, EHSO will be offering credit for the Initial Bloodborne Pathogen Course for those researchers and students who complete the online course entitled, “Annual Bloodborne Pathogen and Needlestick Prevention Refresher”.

Credit will also be given for the Introduction to Laboratory Safety Training, for those who complete the online course entitled, “Annual Laboratory Safety Refresher.”

After completing either of the courses, please email Lucy Martinez at to receive credit.

For those who had registered for the classroom Radiation Safety Awareness Course training, EHSO is offering the online course entitled “Annual Radiation Safety Refresher” to be taken until this crisis comes to an end. The classroom course must still be taken once operations return to normal.

If you are a visiting scholar, visiting faculty, or an external affiliate having trouble with access to BioRaft, please visit, register with the system, select Environmental Health and Safety Courses, and select 2020 Visiting Professional Researcher Training.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact EHSO at
