Safety and Compliance

The College of Veterinary Medicine strives to provide a safe working environment for all employees. The safety training outlined in this document should provide a basic level of training for all employees. Personnel working in the teaching hospital, teaching, research and/or diagnostic laboratories are required to have additional training particular to their scope of work (i.e., animal handling, controlled substance regulations, etc.). This additional training will be provided by the area supervisor.

Likewise, those individuals working with animals, radioisotopes, bloodborne pathogens, or in laboratories with a BSL designation requiring documentation will be required to fulfill all training and documentation requirements as outlined by the Kansas State University Research Compliance Office.

Facilities maintains their own training and are required to abide by those guidelines.

Questions concerning basic safety training requirements for the College of Veterinary Medicine should be directed to the college Environmental Health and Safety Committee:
