Training Systems

To enable UTD researchers to effectively monitor their laboratories' compliance status, The University of Texas at Dallas has implemented an integrated laboratory safety and compliance system called BioRAFT. The BioRAFT system centralizes safety and compliance activities, including safety training, laboratory inspections, hazardous chemical usage and research equipment tracking.

All lab safety training courses are accessible through the BioRAFT system. A NetID and registration with a UTD research laboratory is required for access. If you are visiting a campus lab or do not have a NetID, please contact us at labsafetysupport@utdallas.edu.

  • To access the system, go to utd.bioraft.com
  • Log into the system with your UTD NetID and password
Registration

In order for you to access lab information, you will need to be registered with a UTD laboratory. A Principal or lab delegate may add you to a lab, or you can self-register. If you have been added by your PI or lab delegate, you will receive an email notification inviting you into the system. Once you have been associated with a lab, you will have access to lab information and training materials.

To self-register:

  • Visit utd.bioraft.com/self-register
  • Login with your UTD NetID and password
  • Follow the self-registration wizard by selecting a lab, your role and the activities you will perform in the lab (most activities will be configured for you)
  • After you register, your lab Principal Investigator will receive a request to approve or decline your registration
  • You will be notified by email of your status and training requirements

If you have any questions or difficulties, please send an email to labsafetysupport@utdallas.edu.

Accessing Training

Training courses are associated with the hazards and functions within each lab. As a member of a lab you will be required to complete the training courses relevant to your activities in the lab.

  • Upon registration in a lab you will receive email notification advising you of the courses you will need to complete
  • Links within the email notification will direct you into the BioRAFT system to access the courses
  • Once you have logged into the system using your UTD NetID and password, you can access courses from your home screen in the Training section

Courses will be either delivered online or live. Online courses can be accessed immediately and completed at your own pace. Live courses will need to be scheduled in the system.

Please complete the required courses as soon as possible. If you have any questions or difficulties with accessing training courses, please send an email to labsafetysupport@utdallas.edu.
