Laboratory Safety

Drake's EHS department is committed to the safety of employees, students and visitors in laboratories. As such, EHS has developed comprehensive plans, policies, procedures and training to ensure continued safety of anyone working in labs.

‌Laboratory operations sometimes require the use of hazardous materials which may pose health threats to anyone working in the laboratory. EHS urgers all laboratory personnels to be aware of protocols and regulations guiding various laboratory activities.
