Reminders for Lab Decommissioning

 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. 


The Decommissioning Process:

Why this Process is Important:

Proper laboratory decommissionings leave a vacated space in a stable, known condition that is safe for individuals who are unfamiliar with the laboratory to enter. This also provides a space ready for the next researcher to occupy. It helps reduce the disposal cost associated with unwanted and unknown hazardous materials and encourages sustainability by redistributing unwanted laboratory supplies.

Please review the Laboratory Moves, Relocations and Decommissioning Guidelines located on our website ( for additional information on how to prepare for a laboratory decommissioning.
