Lab Safety Assessments & Inspections

Lab Safety Assessments & Inspections

EH&S conducts annual or biennial safety assessments and inspections of research laboratories to supplement the peer inspections conducted by teams from nearby laboratories in some departments and schools. These assessments and inspections include checklist-based general observations as well as a more targeted review of particularly hazardous processes identified by representatives of the laboratories, departments, schools and EH&S.

September is National Preparedness Month. Do you know where to find the emergency procedures (with specific emergency contacts) posted in your lab and what you would do if immediate action is needed? An online version of the general Emergency Response Guide for your campus is also available through the Emergency Guidance Program.
