The Environmental Health and Safety Department is committed to addressing safety concerns across the UMSL campus, including the laboratory environment. We are working to improve the safety culture at UMSL through several projects. Current laboratory safety initiatives include laboratory inspections, general and laboratory-specific safety training, fume hood testing, improved methods for documenting required training, and a major revision to our Laboratory Safety Plan. We intend to collaborate with, teach, and assist all laboratory stakeholders at the University.
Printable resources, videos, and helpful outside links are also being added to the EHS website. Chemical Safety and Biological Safety information is available. Look for the new Laboratory Safety Program rollout announcement coming soon. More details to come.
If you have laboratory safety questions, concerns, needs, or suggestions, please contact EHS.
