Chemical Safety

All students and new faculty who will be working with chemicals in a laboratory course for the current academic year are required to take a Laboratory Safety Course. The course includes a video and slide show with quiz questions. You must receive a quiz grade of 70% or higher to pass the course. Please contact Liz Dobson-Davis, EHS to be enrolled in this course.

This course is required once per academic year. Upper-level students may also be required to review safety videos pertinent to their courses and/or research.
