The EHS Office has prepared Laboratory Safety Guidelines which are to be followed while conducting laboratory operations involving hazardous materials.
This manual will be updated frequently, so please review this page often for the latest changes.
Lab Supervisors are required to inspect their own labs on a monthly basis using this Checklist
Laboratory Safety Requirements
All students enrolled in courses with an associated laboratory are required to complete the online Laboratory Safety video series each Academic Year. Students must access the online Laboratory Safety training through Blackboard https://blackboard.tamuk.edu/webapps/login/. Online Laboratory Safety Training must be completed no later than the 12th class day. Failure to complete the online training will result in the student’s access to the Laboratory being revoked until the online training is complete. Denial of access can have a negative impact on the students’ final course grade.
Material Safety Data Sheets
MSDS are an important part of Laboratory Safety. They are information resources that describe the hazards and safe procedures that correspond to each individual chemical or substance. Knowing the risks before working in the labs can help keep a safe working environment for everyone.
