Laboratory Incident Reporting

In the event of an emergency or incident in a laboratory where immediate assistance is needed, please contact the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at 315-443-2224. DPS will coordinate a response from DPS officers, Environmental Health and Safety Services, and other emergency responders as warranted.

The laboratory’s principal investigator and/or supervisor must be notified of any incident or near miss incident occurring in their laboratory.  In addition, the incident or near miss must be recorded and reported to Environmental Health and Safety Services (EHSS) using the laboratory incident report form. EHSS will work with the principal investigator, supervisor and/or involved individual(s) to conduct a post incident evaluation to identify steps and recommendations to prevent future reoccurrence.
