About This Webinar

Laboratory safety training is required both to keep researchers safe in the lab, and to be compliant with government agency rules and regulations. The Safety Training Consortium (STC) is a member-driven organization founded by research universities and operates under the auspices of the University of California Center for Laboratory Safety. The purpose of the STC is to develop safety training for the research community. The STC develops web-based, multimedia introductory and specialty eLearning safety courses, and shares safety training materials amongst its members. This presentation will be valuable to anyone responsible for lab safety, developing safety training tools, or introducing new lab staff to the value of a safety program.

Research Project Manager, UC Center for Laboratory Safety
Imke Schroeder, PhD, has been a research project manager at the UC Center for Laboratory Safety since 2012. She is also an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics (MIMG) at UCLA since 2001. She received her PhD in microbiology from the University of Marburg, Germany, and performed her postdoctoral training at UCLA. Imke serves as the administrative liaison for the Safety Training Consortium, an organization consisting of universities and colleges across the United States to develop high quality, peer-reviewed, and engaging online safety courses to benefit researchers’ safety in the lab. Imke’s current academic activities include how state-implemented safety laws are translated into best practices and whether these methods are meaningful and motivating to the research community. She conducts research on laboratory safety, accident analysis, identification of leading factors for accidents and unsafe behaviors, and laboratory safety training. She also has extensive expertise in diverse areas of microbiology including research on extremophiles and a select agent, and she is an expert in the risk assessment associated with each agent and process. She is also well trained in BSL3 best practices. Recent projects include organizing the Laboratory Safety Workshop events in 2016 and 2018, investigating a hydrogen/oxygen explosion at the University of Hawaii in 2016, organizing and safety culture surveys at five UC universities in 2017 and 2018, and safety reviews of university EH&S programs in 2019 and 2020.
