Laboratory operations involving chemicals present a great diversity of health and physical hazards. Laboratory personnel must be able to recognize these hazards and implement practices and procedures to minimize potential risks. To minimize the risks associated with laboratory operations, EHSS provides guidance, assistance, and training to aid laboratory personnel in recognizing hazards and maintaining an environment that fosters safety and compliance.
All laboratory Principal Investigators (PI) are required to implement the applicable components of the University’s chemical hygiene plan in their respective facilities. PIs must also register their laboratory operations with EHSS and update the registration information as changes occur.
