UCLA Laboratory Safety Manual
Laboratory safety is an integral part of laboratory research and is critical to achieving the University’s goal expressed in UCLA Policy 811 of preventing workplace injuries and illnesses, environmental incidents and property losses or damage. It is also essential in complying with all applicable health, safety and environmental protection laws, regulations and requirements, including the Title 8, California Code of Regulations (CCR) Section 5191.
The risks associated with laboratory research are greatly reduced or eliminated when proper precautions and practices are observed in the laboratory. To better manage and mitigate these risks, UCLA has developed this Laboratory Safety Manual. The manual is intended to be the cornerstone of your safety program and is designed to aid faculty, staff and students in maintaining a safe environment to teach and conduct research.
