4.12 Health, Safety, and Environmental Protection
All researchers conducting research activities must do so under the relevant health, safety, and environmental protection regulations. For health, safety and environmental protection information, researchers are required to fully understand and observe Chapter 13 “Safety, Health & Environmental Protection”.
Each faculty member is responsible for training the members of their team in the appropriate health and safety procedures for that particular research area and for the management of those procedures in their laboratory or other workplace. Faculty members are also responsible for the safety of the laboratory facilities and equipment and are required to cooperate with investigations and inspections by University personnel or external agencies.
