Laboratory Incident Reporting

All laboratory incidents must be reported to the principal investigator/supervisor. Environmental Health and Safety Services (EHSS) must also be notified via completion of the laboratory incident report form. EHSS will work with the principal investigator/supervisor to determine the cause of the incident and provide recommendations to prevent future occurrences.

If you are aware of an incident that has gone unreported, or if you witness poor laboratory practices that have the potential to result in an incident (safety concern), please provide information on the situation so we can all learn from it. The anonymous safety concern form does not require any identifying information and is meant to be completely anonymous. The information you provide will help raise awareness and create a safe and productive research environment.
