General and specialized training is required before working in Rice University laboratories. Substitution of training from other organizations or institutes is not accepted as formal training since operational guidelines, emergency procedures, and waste management protocols are unique to Rice.

Use the Safety Training Matrix as a guideline to determine the types of training you are required to complete.
