  • Laboratory Standard (CFR 1910.1450)
  • Biosafety Level 2 (BSL2)
  • Bloodborne Pathogens (Initial) – Refresher training still required on an annual basis if working with human source material
  • Building Emergency Training – Beginning with the Fall 2012 10-Hour Laboratory Safety Class
Radiation Safety
Laser Safety – The training provides an introduction to the fundamentals of laser safety. Topic areas include laser classifications, hazards, non-beam hazards, laser accidents and control measures. This is a one-time, online training, required for all employees who are working with Class IIIb or IV lasers.

Radiation Safety Short Course – This training provides an introduction to the fundamentals of radiation safety including regulatory requirements and OSU policies, ALARA, personnel monitoring, low-level radioactive waste, survey techniques and the laboratory inspection program. This is a one-time, online training, required for all employees who are working in a laboratory posted for the use of radioactive materials.

Hospital Safety & Security Radiation Safety – This training provides general information to OSU Wexner Medical Center security personnel on radiation safety fundamentals, package receipt, patients treated with radioactive materials and implants and laboratories posted for the use of radioactive material. It is an online training that is required annually for all Wexner Medical Center security personnel.

Fluoroscopy Training - This is training provides information for users of fluoroscopic units to implement ALARA to reduce their radiation exposure and addresses techniques to minimize exposure to patients. This is classroom training and is required for all users of fluoroscopic units prior to beginning use.

Human Use Radiation Safety – This training is an introduction to fundamentals of radiation safety including regulatory requirements, ALARA, personnel monitoring, low-level radioactive waste, and survey techniques. It provides details on the OSU radiation safety program and how to safely use radioactive materials in human subjects/patients. This is classroom training and is required for all employees who work with patients receiving radioactive materials upon initial assignment.

Radiological Emergency Training (Main & East) – This training describes the radiological emergency management plan, focusing on a radiological emergency care without delay to patients exposed to, or contaminated by, radioactive materials. It provides information to protect staff members and to control the spread of radiological contamination in the ER and other affected areas of the hospitals. This is classroom training and is required for all Emergency Room staff at the Main Hospital and OSU East upon initial assignment.

Radiation Safety for C-Arm Users – This training provides basic radiation safety training for users of fluoroscopic C-Arm. This is classroom training and is required for all C-Arm users prior to beginning use.
