Lab Closeout & Decontamination
EH&S provides guidance for closeout of laboratories using chemical, biological and/or radiological materials. This includes the cases where there is a change of use, occupancy, or renovation of laboratories. We describe the responsibilities and provide a process for removal and decontamination of materials and equipment. We also provide guidance for clean out and decontamination of select areas of the laboratory as well as guidance for maintenance activities performed on potentially contaminated laboratory equipment.
