Laboratory Safety

The Laboratory Safety Program supports departmental efforts to protect employees and students from injury, and to meet regulatory and industry standards. We work closely with academic, research, and campus support organizations to ensure the safest workplace possible. Laboratory related support includes laboratory safety equipment testing, fume hood testing, laboratory surveys, chemical inventory services, safety reviews, incident investigations, spill responses, and assistance with implementing laboratory safety regulations and standards.

Laboratory safety applies to all employees or students who work in laboratories or work areas that use or store hazardous chemicals. Employees are expected to use work practices developed in accordance with this program to prevent harmful exposure or injury while using hazardous chemicals.
