Training FAQs and ANNOUNCEMENTS

What changed?

EH&S transitioned to the BioRAFT platform in January of 2019 to manage laboratory/shop/studio safety.   

  • I am concerned that some of my training history is lost.  

None of your training records are lost. Many course names changed. Your training history reflects the updated course names.  BioRAFT permitted 3 years of training records. Most courses require refresher training within that time period as well.

  • I don’t recognize all of the course names. What happened?

January 2019 features a number of new and revised courses. We apply credit for past courses that line up with the new courses. Here are a few examples:

Chemical Hygiene 1 and 2 is now Fundamentals of Laboratory Safety

Hand and Power Tool Safety is now Shop Safety

  • I found an error in a training program. What should I do?

Please send an email to j.tessler@northeastern.edu. Your observations matters to us. Feedback will be incorporated into the next round of program revisions. Sometimes the problem is a technical issue on BioRAFT’s end. Be sure to use a modern browser that continually updates (e.g. Firefox, Chrome) for a smoother experience.

  • Why do some of the programs have University of California logos?

Northeastern University is now a member of the Safety Training Consortium (STC) which produces, with member input, a large portfolio of quality laboratory, occupational and environmental health training programs. NU is in the process of editing and modifying a number of programs for our community.
