Lab Safety

The Active Learning Labs staff is deeply committed to maintaining a safe environment for students to learn effectively and comfortably. As part of this commitment, we deploy a variety of safety trainings to the users of our spaces. For most of the courses supported within Active Learning Labs spaces, there are both online safety training requirements (accessible through the Harvard Training Portal) as well as in-person lab-specific safety training. Both of these types of training are essential for compliance with local, state, and federal laws as well as for ensuring best practices of lab use within the Active Learning Labs spaces.

The Active Learning Labs staff associated with your courses will assign specific training requirements as needed. If there are any clarifications needed, feel free to reach out to rachel@seas.harvard.edu with any questions or concerns about Lab Safety in the Active Learning Labs.
