Animal Facility Access
The following steps are required to gain access to the Animal Facility:
Completion of the General Training Module,
Submission of an Occupational Health Form to the IACUC,
Inclusion on the Personnel Roster for the relevant IACUC Protocol(s), and
Submission of a Key/Catcard Access Request Form to the Facility Manager.
These steps are described below.
Animal Facilities Training
Research personnel must complete the General Training module prior to obtaining access to the research animal facilities. Personnel also should complete the Surgery Training, Drug Training and/or Euthanasia Training module(s) if applicable (e.g., personnel performing surgery or euthanasia must complete the relevant training modules).
To access our training modules, please log onto the OACM
Blackboard Site: HRS_OACM_001_20100624:
OACM 001: Office of Animal Care Management which can be
found at bb.uvm.edu.
New students or employees must be added to the Blackboard site in order for them to have access to the training modules. Please email the name and Net ID of new personnel to OACM@uvm.edu. The response time is typically 24 hours. Questions may be directed to 656-0459 or OACM@uvm.edu.
Choose the desired training module, review the materials, and take the on-line quiz. Once you submit the quiz, your responses will be automatically entered in the OACM database as having completed the training.
Any comments or questions about subject material may be directed to the University Veterinarian: firstname.lastname@example.org, or to Animal Care Management at 656-0459.
Occupational Health Certification
The Occupational Health form is filled out and submitted to IACUC on an annual basis starting with the Occupational Health Baseline Form for the first year, then the Occupational Health Annual Form for subsequent years.
Adding Personnel to a Protocol Roster
The PI submits a Protocol Amendment to the IACUC to add new personnel to Protocols. OACM can't authorize access to the facility for personnel who are not listed on a Protocol Roster.
Access to the Animal Facility
After completion of the above you will need to fill out and submit the Access Request Form from the Physical Plant web page: http://www.uvm.edu/~uvmppd/forms/request_for_keys.pdf
The form requires the signature of the OACM Project Manager to be accepted by the Lock Shop. You can fax the filled out form to 6-2234 and the Project Manager will sign it and pass it on to the Lock Shop after checking to see if you qualify for access.
