As of Tuesday, February 28, 2017, the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC) now requires that all personnel working with rodents administered a substance that poses a human health hazard, as determined during review and approval of the associated animal use protocol, complete ULAM-10055 ULAM Hazard Containment for Rodents Workshop.
The workshop provides demonstration and hands-on practice of required procedures and techniques, including topics such as:
- Use of Biosafety Cabinet,
- Carcass labeling and disposal,
- Management of infectious or chemical hazard spills, and
- Proper cage transport and disposal.
