Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop – Laboratory Safety Policies, Programs, and Practices
February 25, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Description: UNCG is committed to providing a safe lab environment through effective risk assessment, communication, training, and compliance with federal regulations and institutional policies. Understanding the role of safety programs in the use of biological, chemical, and other hazardous materials is an important requirement for everyone working in a research lab or environment and is an essential component of research integrity.
Session will address:
- How federal, state and local regulations shape UNCG safety policies in the lab environment.
- What materials, equipment or activities pose a safety or compliance risk in my lab.
- How to implement safety programs to mitigate the risks in my lab.
- What is the role of the Institutional Biological Safety Committee (IBC)?
