Animal Worker Health and Safety Training

All students, faculty and staff who conduct Princeton University-sponsored animal research are required to complete Animal Worker Health and Safety Training and visit Employee Health to enroll in the medical surveillance program for animal workers. Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approval for your research is contingent upon completion of training and enrollment in the medical surveillance program.

After you have completed the on-line training program, please fill out and submit the Initial Health History form to Employee Health. You will be contacted to schedule an appointment with an Employee Health practitioner.
