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
