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.
DEA and NC-DCU regulated substance
EHS requirements for working with compressed gases 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.
NC State University’s goal is to minimize staff and student exposure to electrical hazards including shock/electrocution, arc flash, and fire.
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, fact sheets and checklists
Information regarding inspections and corrective action suggestions
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.
Departments/ PIs must plan in advance to ensure that safety and infrastructure requirements are in place for the planned research. Furthermore, when starting up or shutting down research, there are specific regulatory requirements that must be met to ensure a safe and compliant transition.
