If you work in a laboratory and are departing the University or transferring to another laboratory, please be sure all of your hazardous materials, including samples, solutions, etc., are properly disposed of or acknowledged and inventoried by your principle investigator prior to your departure. Contact EHSS for assistant with disposal of unwanted hazardous materials or for guidance in decommissioning your laboratory or workarea.

Following proper laboratory departure protocol accommodates new research, transfers accountability for hazardous materials, and most importantly, minimizes potential hazards to others.
