Laboratory Safety Plan

The UMSL Laboratory Safety Plan is part of a program designed to make our laboratories safer for everybody.  The Plan contains general lab safety information as well as specific information for several types of materials.  

The Lab Safety Plan document can be accessed here. 

Ronald Yasbin, Dean of Arts and Sciences, wrote the foreword for this plan.  You can download it by clicking here.
