Lab workers performing laboratory procedures involving hazardous chemical and biomaterials are required to have proper training in the safe handling and disposal of all materials they use.  Before starting any work in the lab the personel should be aware of the existing chemical hazards and/or bio hazards. 

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) in collaboration with the faculty Research Safety Advisory Committee prepared the UT-lab Safety manual specifficaly for UT Austin.  There are a wide variety of hazardous materials handled in laboratories at UT Austin.  Faculty and researchers know the most about the unique hazards in their laboratory.  It is expected that the Principal Investigator will append any supplementary safety information to this manual pertinent to their specific laboratory.
