Laboratory Safety & Biosafety


EHS is responsible for administering and monitoring laboratory safety programs at the University of Kansas - Lawrence Campus.

Our goal is to prevent and/or minimize occupational and environmental exposure from hazardous materials usage and hazardous activities being conducted in the laboratory environment.

We work closely with academic, research, and other campus support laboratories to assure that potential laboratory hazards or risks are identified and that proper controls are in place before and during any laboratory activities.
