Saab ETIC Access

All access to labs in Saab Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center (ETIC) require the completion of Level 2 Safety Training through the Environmental & Emergency Management (EEM) Office. Please contact the Principal Investigator (PI) of the lab you need access to initiate this process. UCAPS cannot set access to any lab in this facility without approval from the PI and EEM.

All access to common areas (exterior doors, corridors, offices) requires the completion of Level 1 Safety Training. This training is simply the receipt and review of a document to familiarize visitors to the facility about evacuation procedures, emergency response, and identification of alarms. Once the document is reviewed, the Level 1 Safety Training log which is located in the administrative office of Saab ETIC must be signed.
