The academic laboratory environment is highly complex and requires support and guidance information to promote safe work practices and compliance. Our laboratory resources include process review procedures, equipment resources and checklists, PPE guidance and more.
Laboratory chemical safety guidelines including chemical storage, exposure prevention, eyewash and safety showers, and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
DEA and NC-DCU regulated substance
Safety requirements for using compressed gas use and cryogenic liquids
Types of fume hoods, limitations, NC State’s inspection and certification program, and information for project managers
Processes involving hazardous materials and/or equipment that need to be reviewed and approved by EH&S.
Information regarding inspections and corrective action suggestions
Guidance on laser use/design safety considerations, and UV, RF, and Microwave safety in laboratories
Selection, limitation, and proper use of personal protective equipment required for different tasks
Lab and chemical relocation information and checklists
Guidelines and recommendations for safety and security in laboratories.
This procedure applies to the procurement, generation, distribution (sharing), use, shipping, and disposal of engineered nanomaterials.
In a new approach aimed to assist labs/other spaces to improve health and safety conditions, EH&S is offering information and training for secondary safety contacts.
