Laboratory Safety

Lab Safety provides training and guidance on a number of laboratory topics including bloodborne pathogens, hazardous materials shipping, chemical safety, biological safety, select agents and toxins, and controlled substances. In addition to lab safety inspections, Lab Safety also investigates laboratory incidents including fire, spills, laboratory injuries, and any chemical, biological, or radiological exposure.

Name Tag for Compressed Gas Cylinders

EHS can provide a plastic sleeve that holds a Name Tag for compressed gases. Each user can complete and print their own tag by using this template.

Feel free to tag all your compressed gas cylinders, but at a minimum hazardous gases should have an attached tag. Download the tag template (PDF).
