The portal to access the mandatory programs and forms requires ID authentication. Access is restricted to University of Illinois faculty, students, staff, and authorized guest users. Contact the IACUC or OHS staff to set up a guest account. The training must be renewed every three years. Risk Assessment Forms must be updated if exposures have changed due to change in research and/or employment.
OHS participants with frequent or substantial contact with animals or work in the animal facilities are required to complete the confidential Health Screening Questionnaire, which will be used to identify potential additional risks. The Animal Care and Use Program medical reviewer will review the form and communicate information directly to the participant.
