Webinar: Simplifying Laboratory Safety Training for Researchers with BioRAFT

Simplifying Laboratory Safety Training for Researchers with BioRAFT

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 1:00PM - 2:00 PM EDT


Research Institutions struggle to manage laboratory safety training in a way that does not distract, frustrate, or burden researchers. BioRAFT offers a way to track all the training requirements of your researchers, to deliver your content in smaller, more targeted modules, and to view and manage your institution's training compliance more comprehensively and in less time. Furthermore, BioRAFT integrates with other solutions to allow its benefits to augment the systems you have in place if desired.

This is a FREE 60 minute webinar demonstrating the use and application of BioRAFT's software for Laboratory Safety Training.

Learning Objectives

  • Automate the assignment of training requirements based on job activities
  • Deliver training content online to maximize flexibility and convenience for researchers
  • Eliminate manual tracking and follow-up for training requirements
  • View the training compliance of individuals, laboratories, departments and the institution through dashboards


BioRAFT will be at the 2016 Harvard Yale IBC Symposium from May 3-4

Association of Public and Land-Grand Universities Publishes Comprehensive Guide for Laboratory Safety Best Practices

On April 11, 2016, the APLU published a list of best practices assembled from a wide array of laboratory safety resources, found here. The APLU's guide was compiled by a task force of more than 15 experts, co-chaired by Taylor Eighmy of University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Mark McLellan of Utah State University, including honorary chair Gene Block of University of California Los Angeles.

The website categorizes numerous articles and resources into a framework that outlines specific steps that can be taken by university Presidents, Deans, EH&S personnel, faculty, and research personnel to improve laboratory safety culture.

We plan to post more updates and information on this exciting project in the near future. Sign up for our mailing list using the form below and never miss a post.
