A revised Chemical and Laboratory Safety Manual is now available to all members of the UGA community online at https://t.uga.edu/2HC.
The CLSM provides detailed guidance and procedures outlining the safe operation of all research, teaching and public service laboratories.
“The safety of faculty, staff, students and visitors is of paramount importance at UGA, and this revised manual contains the most up-to-date information about the safe operation of laboratories,” said Vice President for Research David Lee.
The emphasis on UGA’s culture of safety is reflected in Academic Affairs policies 6.01 and 6.02, which establish a comprehensive Environmental Health and Safety Management System to ensure that the UGA community, including all stakeholders, has a safe place to live, work, study, conduct research and engage in service and outreach.
The CLSM is maintained by the faculty-led Research Safety Committee with support from the Office of Research Safety and the Environmental Safety Division and with oversight by the Environmental Health and Safety Management System executive committee. The CLSM is the benchmark document that is used when laboratories at UGA are inspected.
