The Technical Safety Office coordinates a variety of materials handling and waste disposal-related training. Most of this training is required by state and federal regulations to be completed by faculty, staff and students on an annual basis. It is also part of the best practices for use of these substances.

Meeting these requirements is essential to maintain ISU licenses and permits for the use of radioactive and pathogenic, as well as hazardous, substances for research and educational purposes.

Many training courses and examinations are available online.

If you have questions regarding whether you have completed required training, contact the Technical Safety Office at (208) 282-2310.
