Lab Safety

The Lab Safety Program is responsible for safety and environmental compliance within research and teaching labs throughout BGSU facilities. Our focus is to provide proactive direction for labs with safety issues and to facilitate compliance. Environmental Health and Safety provides guidance to laboratory personnel at BGSU in the following areas: use, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials, development of specific operating procedures, waste minimization, and fume hood evaluations.
