BIOSAFETY TRAINING

OU requires that every employee complete annual safety training for the types of work performed.  Laboratory Safety (required for all laboratory personnel) and General Biosafety training are required for all personnel identified on any IBC protocol. Bloodborne Pathogen training is required for working with human cell lines.

The training previously found on this page has moved. Beginning on July 3, 2017, all EHSO and Biosafety training will be transitioned to the University Learning Management System, OnPoint.  Employees will no longer be able to self-enroll for these courses.  Departments will need to designate training requirements for their employees through PeopleSoft.

The previous year of training completion records will be uploaded into OnPoint.Employees can log into PeopleSoft Self-Service or OnPoint to view these records in the View Training History section of OnPoint after July 3rd.  You will automatically be assigned when your training is due and once your department has indicated that it is required for your position. Questions regarding your training requirements should be directed to your payroll coordinator or supervisor.

No action is required until you receive a course enrollment notification email from OnPoint.  You may view your currently assigned training with an approaching due date in the “Take Required Training” section in OnPoint.  Only training listed in the “Take Required Training” section can be completed for credit.  Courses listed in the “View Training History” section cannot be re-taken for credit.  If you believe you have training that is due and it is not listed under “Take Required Training”, contact your supervisor, payroll coordinator or OnPoint at onpoint@ou.edu or onpoint@oushc.edu.

Non-Employee related training for students will be available in OnPoint by clicking on the “Library” tab at the top of the page. 

OnPoint can be accessed from either of the addresses listed below.
