Safety & Health Training
The DOHS regularly provides training on a variety of subjects to the NIH Community.
- Laboratory Safety
- Bloodborne Pathogen
- Select Agent Program
- STAR-LITE: Developed especially for young scientists, STAR-LITE is an interactive video game-like training program which provides basic laboratory safety training
- Healthcare Provider AED/CPR Training - This course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals (i.e. physicians, nurses, those who work in patient contact areas, clinical staff, or NIH Public Health Service) the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner. It is mandatory for healthcare providers to take this training. If you are not a healthcare provider, you cannot enroll and take the Healthcare Provider AED/CPR Training.
- Lay Responder AED/CPR Training for Individuals - This course teaches individuals (who are not healthcare providers) critical skills needed to respond to and manage a first aid, choking or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. This course does not fulfill Healthcare Provider Certification. If you are a healthcare provider, you must enroll in the Healthcare Provider AED/CPR Training, not the Lay Responder AED/CPR Training.
- Lay Responder AED/CPR Training for Institutes, Organizations or Buildings -
If your institute, organization or building would like to schedule a Lay Responder AED/CPR Training at your location, contact the AED Program Manager in the Community Health Branch, DOHS, ORS at (301) 496-2960 or via e-mail
Note: Training is limited to only NIH Employees, contractors and special assigned personnel.
