Students > Laboratory Safety
Before entering any of our Department’s Laboratories, and taking advantage of the unique facilities available at the University of Michigan, you need to be properly trained and comply with all safety requirements.
Safety training is required for anyone working in research laboratories or conducting work that leads to potential contact with hazardous materials. No work can be conducted until proof is supplied to the supervisor of the laboratory that the requisite safety training has been completed.
Specialized training may also is required to operate certain equipment and devices so always check with the laboratory supervisor about the safety requirements and training associated with using any equipment.
If you need to fill out a CoE Safety Incident Report, please submit a report via the Safety Incident Report form. After medical treatment, report the incident to the faculty or staff person responsible for the course or laboratory as soon as possible.
The EHS department promotes health, safety and environmental compliance within the U-M campus community.Learn more »
