Animal Care Worker Compliance

Recently, the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) visited MSU and recommended changes to our Animal Care procedures in order to keep our Federal Assurance. One of those changes involves a new, centralized occupational health system for those people working with animals.

Faculty, staff, students and volunteers participating in an IACUC approved animal activity at MSU are required to complete Animal Care Worker Compliance (ACWC).  Documentation of compliance must be on file in the Office of Counseling and Health Services.

If you are required to complete Animal Care Worker Compliance, you will receive a secure email from the Office of Counseling and Health Services ( with instructions on how to complete this requirement.

Forms revised May 2015 are available on the Protocol Forms page.

Please feel free to contact Janet Cline or your departmental representative if you have a question.
