Protocol Specific Zoonoses Training
All personnel listed on an approved IACUC protocol or involved in an IACUC exempt activity that involves exposure to potential zoonoses (diseases that can be transmitted between animals and humans) will be required to completed protocol specific zoonoses training before working independently or prior to the annual review of the protocol, whichever comes first. The University Veterinarian or designee will provide training materials to the Principal Investigator to share with personnel listed on his/her protocol. The PI will be responsible to provide names of personnel and dates to the UV of those who have completed the zoonoses training. The AVS veterinarians are available to assist PIs in writing a zoonotic exposure plan as part of the project’s overall occupational and health and safety plan.
