The University has designated that undergraduates who are working with certain UCLA faculty as part of SRP-99 must complete Lab Safety Fundamentals (LSF) training prior to enrollment. LSF is a free, online course administered by the Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) office and can be completed on WorkSafe.

UCLA Policy 906 : Undergraduate Researcher Laboratory Safety applies to all UCLA undergraduate researchers.

This Policy applies to all Undergraduate Researchers, including work study and other student employees,
working in research laboratories. Undergraduate Researchers doing clinical research involving humans
are subject to additional requirements, including those of UCLA Health and Health Sciences.

UCLA recognizes that undergraduate students participating in research projects may not have the scientific background, technical knowledge, or practical experience to engage safely in all research activities. As a result, some research activities require additional safety requirements. Some activities that involve highly hazardous materials are prohibited.

We recommend that all students review UCLA Policy 906 prior to beginning research activities and that they  consult with their PI/Faculty about what safety training(s) are required.
