Live Animal Safety Training
All individuals that will come in contact with live animals must receive training beyond
the one day SURF safety orientation. Those of you working in monkey or frog labs, please make sure
that you get training in the lab.
Those of you that will be working with rodents must complete a nurse’s examination and a two day
training at the uptown campus before coming in contact with live animals. The nurse’s examination
must be performed at the campus where the animals are housed. The complete list of instructions
and accompanying forms are available at:
For those of you with animals housed downtown, fill out the medical form and
get your PI to sign it.
Turn it in to health services:
1. personally - John Jay Hall
