Local Laboratory Safety Committees

Lab Safety Advisors

EH&S assigns a Lab Safety Advisor (LSA) to all Harvard research labs to ensure safe work practices. LSAs can help you with safety related issues or concerns.

LSAs advise Lab Safety Officers (LSO), appointed by principal investigators (PI), to ensure lab staff safety in the research and teaching labs. LSAs also facilitate safety committee meetings with LSOs to discuss safety topics, recent incidents, best practices.
