Lab Inspections

Lab and Chemical Safety conducts periodic lab inspections for all spaces working with chemical agents. Lab inspections promote a safer work environment and ultimately improve the safety culture of the lab. Labs are required to complete a weekly self-inspection. Please see the documents below.

For more information about lab inspections, please refer to the Lab Safety Manual.
