How to Prepare for Lab Moves and Close-Outs

Is your lab moving?

Is your lab relocating to a new space?

Is your lab closing-out and stopping research activities?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, contact your EHSO Building Liaison. We are here to help make the transition smooth and easy.

EHSO has recently updated the guidelines for Lab Moves, Relocations, and Decommissioning:  http://www.ehso.emory.edu/documents/laboratory-moves-relocations-and-decommissioning-guidelines.pdf

Proper Laboratory Decommissioning:

  • ensures that the vacated space is in a stable and known condition, safe for individuals unfamiliar with the laboratory to enter.
  • ensures that the vacated space is ready for the next researcher that will be assigned to the space.
  • reduces disposal costs associated with unwanted and unknown hazardous materials, and
  • encourages sustainability through redistribution of unwanted, usable laboratory equipment and supplies.

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