October is NIH’s Biosafety Month

Use this opportunity to assess your biosafety habits. Are you:

  • Registering all of your biological work with the Biosafety Office? We switched to an electronic platform, BioRAFT, this year. Use this new system to submit your work.
  • Practicing good lab techniques? Disinfect surfaces after work and wash your hands every time you leave the lab.
  • Handling your biomedical waste appropriately? All waste should go into a biohazard bin that is kept closed when not in use. Waste should go out through Stericycle.

Contact your building liaison if you have any questions by visiting ehso.emory.edu/about.
