Roger Williams University has a fundamental obligation to preserve the health and safety of its personnel. Working in science labs creates additional safety concerns that may not be present in a regular classroom. It is vital that both staff and students are aware of the potential hazards, proper techniques for minimizing these hazards, and procedures for dealing with lab emergencies.
Staff and students working in MNS labs are required to complete a Lab Safety Training course annually. The division hosts a lab saferty training session as part of the MNS Seminar Series each Fall semester. Lab safety training can also be completed online. See the RWU EH&S Traiing website for more information.
Chemical and Lab Safety information and policies can be found at the EH&S Chemical Safety website.
