Manual provides safety information for campus labs

A new manual provides basic guidelines for safe research, teaching and learning in campus laboratories, says Sherri Menard, team leader of the Chemical Control Centre.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide a central resource like this,” she says. “It includes everything from precautions on specific equipment to WHMIS information.”

The centre, part of Health and Safety, has a responsibility to ensure the safety of researchers, whether faculty, staff or students, Menard says.
