Preparing for Lab Moves and Close-Outs

EHSO guidelines for lab decommissioning:

Proper Laboratory Decommissioning:

  • Ensures that the vacated space is in a stable and known condition, safe for individuals unfamiliar with the laboratory to enter,
  • Reduces disposal costs associated with unwanted and unknown hazardous materials, and
  • Encourages sustainability through redistribution of unwanted, useable laboratory equipment and supplies.

Ultimate responsibility for preparing a laboratory to be safe and compliant lies with departmental management.
