The Sponsored Projects Administration Grants Transmittal Form now includes check boxes for required training in Laboratory Safety Basics. This new requirement allows verification of compliance with Academic Affairs Policies 6.01 and 6.02 prior to release of any grant funding.
These policies and change to the transmittal are designed to ensure safety, accountability and compliance in conducting laboratory-based research. This two-step verification process 1) identifies individuals working in laboratory environments, and 2) documents the required training.
Questions about the Laboratory Basics Safety Training can be directed to Safe Secure Science Training at SSSTraining@uga.edu.
