Lab Safety Training

Please complete initial classroom or online lab safety training through OWL in lieu of classroom training.  Please use this handout as a supplement to the training.  Initial classroom or online lab safety training is required once every 5 years, and refresher lab safety training is required annually.  Please note that completion of either lab safety training module fulfills the annual training requirements for right to know and hazardous waste.

New lab members can order lab coats and eye protection online.

Please note that a Net ID is required to access training in OWL.  Non-UMass community members will need to have a NENS setup for them to be able to access the trainings.  Please note that the NENS will show up in SPIRE before it is synced with OWL, sometimes up to 48 hours.  If you have difficulty setting up the NENS, please contact OIT at 413-545-9400 or email

There are no general in-person trainings scheduled at this time.
