Lab Safety & Research
People who work in scientific laboratories are exposed to many kinds of hazards. This can be said of most workplaces; in some, the hazards are well recognized and the precautions to be taken are obvious. Laboratories, however, involve a greater variety of possible hazards than do most workplaces, and some of those hazards call for precautions not ordinarily encountered elsewhere. The Office of Health and Safety works in partnership with faculty, researchers, staff and students to promote safe and healthful laboratory environments that will support the University's science and research mission.
