Chemical Safety

Laboratory workers are routinely exposed to hazardous chemicals. Many accidents and injuries occur annually in labs, resulting in chemical-related illnesses ranging from skin and eye irritation to fatal pulmonary edema. Environmental Health and Safety works to reduce occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals in laboratories by providing training to faculty and graduate students, maintaining the university chemical hygiene plan, and helping the university to maintain compliance with multiple regulations enforced by Oregon OSHA.
