Biological safety training is required for personnel associated with work in biological laboratories, either for research or teaching purposes.  This online training ensures that personnel working in certain laboratories have been trained in basic biological safety principals before conducting work in laboratories at Indiana University. 

This online training is intended to promote a safe laboratory working environment and to help ensure compliance with the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules and the Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories, 5
