The goal of the EHS Biological Safety program is to protect laboratory workers, the environment, and the community from exposure to biohazardous materials while ensuring the integrity of experimental materials. EH&S assists researchers in conducting risk assessments and provides guidance to laboratory personnel on the microbiological practices, safety equipment and facilities under which biohazardous materials can be safely manipulated. In addition, the EH&S Office aims to ensure that laboratories are in compliance with all policies and regulatory requirements for working with biohazardous materials.
