Lab Safety Manual

UNMC Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and the UNMC Office of Research have developed this UNMC Laboratory Safety Manual  with the intent to provide the necessary resources for laboratory personnel, including faculty, staff, students and visitors, to work in an atmosphere and culture of absolute safety.

This Laboratory Safety Manual provides guidance, policies and procedures that will allow laboratory workers to work safely, be compliant with regulations, operate efficiently and develop accountability for everyone.  EHS will also develop training, audit programs and management systems based off this manual which will allow all of us to assess safety risks and keep these risks to the absolute minimum.

As we add additional information and work to make this manual more interactive and user friendly, please feel free to share comments and suggestions at
