Lab Safety Spotlight

After the Research Safety team conducted laboratory inspections during the month of October, our team has selected one lab to be recognized based on inspection findings that required very minimal corrective action(s).

EHSO would like to recognize the Meeks/Lollar Lab for the October Lab Safety Spotlight. Congratulations to the members of Drs. Shannon Meeks and Pete Lollar research groups for embracing a culture of safety. Keep up the great work!

Members of the lab selected for the Lab Safety Spotlight will receive a pizza party sponsored by EHSO.

The following labs were considered for the October Lab Safety Spotlight by the Research Safety team:

  • Kim Lab
  • Kugathasan Lab
  • Vazquez-Prokopec Lab
  • Wrammert Lab

Thank you to all the labs and team members for being proactive and embracing a culture of safety.

We will continue to feature a selected lab every month.

Ways members of research labs can embrace a culture of safety:

  • Maintain your EHSO training up-to-date
  • Know the biological or chemical properties or characteristics of the materials that you are using in research
  • Use your PPE according to the lab-specific PPE Assessment
  • Review the safety and lab-specific SOPs before commencing work
  • Clean after you have finished your work
  • Know how to respond to and report an incident or accident
