Chemical & Laboratory Safety Program


Chemicals play an important role in research and teaching at the Augusta University. Unlike industrial production facilities, laboratories at academic institutions generally have small quantities, but a large variety of chemicals with multiple risk factors and multiple points of hazardous waste generation. Therefore, meeting the requirements for protection of workers, students, and environment can be challenging.

In an effort to meet the challenges, the Institutional Chemical Safety Committee works with the Chemical Safety Office to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in development of safe work practices in laboratories and fostering cooperative efforts between laboratory workers and support services. Their objective is to ensure safety of all employees, students, and visitors at the Augusta University and to achieve full regulatory compliance campus wide.
