NEW Mercury Thermometer Exchange Campaign

EHSO is launching a new campaign to encourage researchers to phase out mercury thermometers from their labs by participating in an exchange program. EHSO will provide, free of charge, a 1 for 1 replacement of existing mercury thermometers, with red, alcohol filled thermometers.

This new campaign builds on our continuing efforts to remove un-needed, unwanted and unusable chemicals from labs across Emory University.

Researchers are encouraged to participate by following these steps:

The campaign will be rolled out over the course of the calendar year (see below):
