Lab and Research Safety

Welcome to the Lab and Research Safety page! The development of the Lab and Research Safety program is an effort to streamline and continue to build a strong safety culture at UF. Lab and Research Safety now includes the lab safety, biological safety, radiation safety, and hazardous materials management programs, along with a new program, animal research health and safety. The individual safety programs may appear very different, but they share many of the same goals and challenges. Integration of these formerly independent programs allows EH&S to increase our productivity and improve customer service.

Please visit the New Researcher Introduction page for a brief descriptions of the various research related programs.
