New online risk assessment tool now available

Posted: November 1, 2017

A new user-friendly web-based tool for conducting risk-based assessments – the Online Risk Assessment Tool (ORAT) is available as of November 1, 2017. The ORAT replaces the existing Occupational Health Registry. It is important to understand the potential risks associated with research or job-related duties – especially when there are potential risks due to contact with animals, hazardous agents, operations or environments. The ORAT employs a simple question and answer model that builds a personalized risk assessment designed to the specific hazards that may be encountered as part of work-related responsibilities.  More information is available on the IACUC Occupational Health Program webpage.
