Safety Information

The Safety Committee of Chemical Engineering serves as a resource to help provide a safe, healthy work and educational environment to all members of our community, striving to promote that “Safety is a Core Value” in the department.  We openly foster a positive Safety Culture by encouraging a “Safety First” approach to all work and research activities.  Our philosophy is that a Safety Hazard Analysis be performed prior to starting any research or work activity, to ensure that all participating members are properly trained and outfitted, thus minimizing the risks of any safety incidents from occurring.  This requires that all researchers must review and abide by the department Safety Manual and the pages listed above prior to starting any lab research.
