Academic Labs, Colleges and Universities

Recent academic laboratory accidents, heightened regulatory awareness and increased laboratory security concerns are all compelling university and colleges to re-evaluate their lab safety programs.

How we help

Academic lab safety is a major issue across the country. The National Academy of Sciences recently kicked off a yearlong study of “Safety Culture in Academic Laboratories” to help improve the safety of chemistry research laboratories in higher education. In addition, educational institutions are faced with an ever-growing list of environmental compliance, employee and student health & safety, emergency planning, sustainability and risk management challenges.

We are available to share our experiences working in the higher education sector and introduce the resources we can provide to help you identify and implement new approaches, tools and technologies to manage chemical safety, laboratory hazards, security and other environmental, health and safety requirements.
