Lab Safety Guidelines & SOPs
Lab Safety Guidelines includes key highlights extracted from safety data sheets (SDSs), supplemented with Harvard specific storage, disposal, and emergency response information. These guidelines provide supplemental information for use with lab protocols, new hire review information, new process implementation and for various situations in which a lab group would use the chemical listed in the guideline. The guidelines do not substitute for standard operating procedures or written lab experimental protocols that incorporate safety equipment or precautions, especially for particularly hazardous substances such as highly acutely toxic substances, human carcinogens, or human reproductive toxins. If you have any questions about the guidelines or would like to discuss your specific lab experimental processes or setups, please reach out to your Laboratory Safety Advisor in EHS.
