Lab Safety

Work safely in the lab

Some of your work may involve time working in one of UAF's laboratories. To keep everyone safe, UAF Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management has developed many lab safety presentations specific to chemicals or procedures.

See the Lab Worker Training page for trainings on:

  • lab safety
  • chemical hygiene
  • hazardous waste management

What additional training do you need?
