Research and Academic Laboratory Safety Tips

Never work alone in a research or academic laboratory setting. Please always institute a Buddy System, especially when working after normal building hours.


The mission of the College of Engineering Safety Committee (CoESafe) is to serve as the primary body for implementing the CoE Laboratory and Research Safety Accountability Plan. Each CoE Department/Unit is represented on the CoESafe Committee by their Safety Chair and meets quarterly with the CoESafe Committee Chair, SAL, Co-SAL, CoESafety Manager, ADAA, ADR, EHS Representatives and DPSS Representatives. The CoESafe Committee provides a structure and venue for reporting safety deficiencies, incidents/near-misses and statistics. Additionally, safety culture initiatives and programs are discussed within the CoESafe Committee to evaluate community receptivity and implementation strategies. .

The mission of the College of Engineering Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) is to provide planning, direction and oversight of College safety and security initiatives for crisis management, business process continuity and the protection of our community.
