Lab Safety Training location and time change

In-Person Lab Safety Training (which covers Bloodborne Pathogens, Lab Chemical Safety, and Hazardous Waste) is changing times to the afternoon. Instead of 10 am every other Tuesday, Lab Safety Training will change to 1 pm beginning Wednesday, August 2nd. Also note that training sessions in August 2023 have been moved to the SMC Campus Center, 621 West Lombard Street, Baltimore MD as noted on the training schedule

 BioRAFT is now SciShield

UMB’s transition is scheduled for 9 am Tuesday 8/15/23. UMB's instance of the BioRAFT/SciShield platform will be down for 1 hour that morning. Any umaryland.bioraft.com URL will redirect to umaryland.scishield.com automatically. If you have any urgent needs during the hour, call EHS at 410-706-7055 or reach out to any of us by email.

EHS Compliance Training is moving to SciShield

Online lab safety courses will soon be offered through the SciShield platform, with access to all lab personnel, easier reporting for lab managers and department administrators, and linked to the actual hazards you work with. You will be able to access the course directory 8/17/23, but training history and requirements have not been activated yet- no automated emails will send out until those are ready.
