Lab Safety Assessment Program

The Department of Environmental Health and Safety has developed a lab safety assessment program that will create a collaborative safety culture at the University of Louisville. It will encourage open communication between lab personnel and DEHS through a comprehensive approach to chemical, biological, and general lab safety and will integrate lab-tailored training opportunities as part of the assessment process.
