Teaching Safety Reviews
Procedures for teaching laboratory experiments that involve invasive procedures on human subjects must be reviewed and approved by the Teaching Safety Committee (TSC) prior to commencement of the experiment.
Experiments that involve invasive procedures include:
· Any procedure which requires the entry of a needle or other instrument into part of the body
· Any procedure which could result in transmission of bodily fluids
· Any procedure that involves potential contact with bodily fluids or tissues not considered normal contact
· Specific examples such as: testing for blood glucose levels, collecting cheek cells, performing urinalysis
The TSC may be consulted to determine whether a teaching experiment requires review.
Course instructors who are planning to run experiments that involve invasive procedures on human subjects must fill out a review form and submit it to Sarah Lamb at firstname.lastname@example.org. Associated documentation must also be included in the submission, and can also be sent via email. The review form and associated documentation must be reviewed and approved prior to running the experiment.
