Laboratory Safety Audits

The primary purpose for annual laboratory safety audits is to ensure all laboratory principal investigators, staff, and students are conducting research safely and in accordance with the EPA and OSHA regulations applicable to research laboratories.  Annual laboratory safety audits are conducted by EHS and should be viewed as a positive management tool that provides the user and UNMC with an opportunity  to assess environmental impacts and correct any potential problems prior to a regulatory inspection.
