Conservation Lab Safety

Conservation Lab Safety

Harvard University’s Conservation Laboratories play a critical role in supporting the University’s mission. Conservation spaces may vary in size and scope, but often include activities that involve a variety of EH&S risks.

The Conservation Lab Safety Program provides occupational safety and environmental regulatory information specific to Conservation Laboratories. Every Conservation Lab at Harvard is supported by a Lab Safety Adviser (LSA) and a Designated Safety Officer (DSO).
