Graduate students must follow safe laboratory practices. The department maintains an active Laboratory Safety Committee composed of faculty, staff and students who carry out periodic laboratory inspections. Students are expected to be responsive to the safety improvements suggested by the committee, and to serve on the committee when asked. From time to time, the department will schedule safety seminars or training sessions that all students are expected to attend.
All graduate students must receive E H S safety training from the University, and a copy of the E H S certificate should be kept on file in each laboratory where the student works. Questions about safety issues should be addressed to the Department's Safety Officer (Roger Dunlap). Additional information can be obtained from the University's Environmental Health and Safety website.
