Research Safety


The Research Safety Program assists faculty, staff, students and visitors within research units to safely conduct research, to create safe research environments, and to achieve and maintain compliance with regulations related to health, safety, and protection of the environment.  

The team supports the safe use of biological, chemical, controlled substances and radiological materials at the university, and staffs specialists in these areas and in general laboratory safety. 

Research Safety works collaboratively with all stakeholders to develop, implement, and provide oversight to the university’s comprehensive research safety programs.

Information about hazardous materials including disposal, storage and transporting is also available. 

For clearly identified regulations, rules, and consensus standards pertinent to laboratory operations, date of last review, and affected University units, please see the Lab Specific Compliance Matrix.
