Laboratory SafetyUSU accomplishments range from experiments that fly in space to new treatments for harmful diseases to new methods of water management. To maintain this reputation of research, projects and discoveries occur on campus on a daily basis in laboratories and centers scattered around campus and beyond. Some of the substances needed for researchers to conduct their studies are hazardous or require special handling.
EHS supports these research activities by helping scientists use and dispose of these substances safely.
