Lab Safety

Each lab member is responsible for following all policies and procedures associated with making the lab a safe environment for all. Students working in a professor’s research lab must sign and return the:

PI and Grad Student Guidelinesform. These forms can be turned into the safety officer or department director.

Quarterly lab inspections will be performed by the safety officer, and reported to the director. Any infractions must be corrected immediately. Uncorrected issues, and blatant disregard of the rules will result in the cut-off of student/faculty lab access. The inspection will consist of the following checklist- please check this sheet to be sure your lab meets requirements.

If you need to report a building problem or hazard please contact Emily Born at eborn@latech.edu or call 318-257-5206.

Other Considerations: Other approval needed?
