Medical Center and Campus Safety Training

Last revised: 

Safety training is available via the UC Learning Center. It is necessary for Campus staff who work in the Medical Center to complete the required Medical Center training courses.


Annual Safety Training

This course will provide you with an understanding of safe work practices and help you to identify hazards and unsafe work conditions. The material covered in this course includes General Safety, Medical Equipment, Building Utilities, Fire and Life Safety, Security, Emergency Preparedness, Hazardous Materials, Infectious Diseases, Working Safely, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Units, National Patient Safety Goals, and Incident Reporting System.


Infection Control for Ancillary Staff 

This course provides the information and tools necessary for staff who work at UCSF Medical Center and Children’s Hospital to implement effective infection control and prevention strategies. This knowledge will help staff prevent the spread of infection to patients, their colleagues, and themselves.


Bloodborne Pathogens

The Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) course outlines the requirements of the California Bloodborne Pathogen Standard, including methods for protecting against exposure. BBP is required for all employees working with or who may be exposed to human source (blood, body fluids, organs, and tissues) or other potentially infectious material. Bloodborne Pathogen training must be renewed annually. 


Safe Shipping of Biohazards

Biohazardous materials are regularly transported within, and outside of, UCSF. Shipping procedures are highly regulated and require the completion of the Safe Shipping of Biohazards training. Non-compliance can lead to fines and other punitive penalties. This training must be renewed every two years.
