CSRB Lab Safety Procedures

Before working in any CLaSP lab, all faculty, staff and students must complete the General Laboratory Safety Training (Faculty Course EHS_BLS025w; Student Course BLS042w) available through My LINC (maislinc.umich.edu). The certificate at the end of the course needs to be printed and filed in the Blue Binder (lab safety binder) training section found in each laboratory. 

NOTE: Students doing work in a research lab that is not related to class work are required to take the EHS_BLS025w course.

For any activity that may pose a possible hazard or safety risk, a standard operating procedure for that particular procedure needs to be written up and that training needs to be given to everyone that plans to take part in the lab.
A signature of acknowledgement is required on Standard Operating Procedures documents (SOPs). U-M Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) has a
list of SOPs that can be modified to be more specific to your laboratory operation.

  • All chemicals brought into a lab MUST be on the chemical inventory for that lab. 
  • A safety data sheet MUST be included in the Blue Binder for all chemicals. 
  • All containers containing a compound of chemicals, or chemicals that have been moved from the original container MUST be labeled appropriately.
  • Food or drinks are NOT allowed in the labs.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) must be worn when in a lab (safety glasses, gloves, lab coat). No sandals or shorts when working with chemicals or machinery.
  • All incidents or near misses must be reported immediately to the Safety Committee (SRB-SafetyCom@umich.edu). EHS will review the incident, and advise on how to avoid or minimize the risk in the future.
  • All equipment not in use must be powered off and unplugged. Damaged equipment must be reported to the lab manager immediately for repair or replacement.
  • Collect and label all chemical waste in a designated area. Waste needs to be disposed of via EHS Hazmat within 60 days of first accumulation date.
  • Allow enough time at the end of each working day to clean up work areas so that clutter does not accumulate posing a fire or tripping hazard.
