Environmental Health & Safety

Environmental Health and Safety, like other facility and resource needs, will require ongoing monitoring, reporting, or updating as the research project or program proceeds. Particular attention to these requirements may be needed if the scope or location of the research changes, and if Key Personnel or other Investigators are added or removed from the project while it is ongoing.


  • Principal Investigators (PIs) and supervisors are responsible for the workplace safety of everyone who works in the laboratory.
  • Researchers and their teams will need to participate in surveys, inspections, and audits conducted by EH&S.
