CHBS Laboratory Safety

Many departments within the College of Health and Behavioral Studies operate laboratories that support student instruction and scholarship.  It is vital that everyone who works in our laboratories recognize the hazards associated with laboratory activities and follow proper safety procedures at all times. 

Our college has developed a safety plan which is recommended reading for all students, staff and faculty who work in our labs. 

All students, staff and faculty must receive safety training prior to working in our labs.  Faculty supervising labs are responsible for providing that training to students. 

If you have questions about laboratory safety, contact the supervisor of the laboratory in which you work.
