The Laboratory and Chemical Safety Program is here to provide for human safety and protection of the environment in the work we do. The primary elements of the program are registration of laboratory work (via BioRAFT), training, consultation, audit and emergency response. Most importantly, we are here to help you.
Need help with laboratory safety?
Request a consultation (i.e. toxicology review, work practice assessment, protective equipment, containment or engineering controls, lab group review)
What types of risks can you help me with?
Chemical - flammable liquids/gasses/solids, toxics, reactive or corrosive materials
Physical - high heat, temperature, pressure, cryogens, vacuum devices
Process/Human - controls, risk assessment, failure analysis, root cause analysis and mistake-proofing
The Dartmouth College Laboratory Safety Advisory Committee (LSAC) sets policy, provides oversight and reviews high risk chemical and physical hazard work in our academic areas. The committee is made up of administrators and faculty around the college with experience in the sciences. The committee bylaws can be found here.
