Environmental Health & Safety

Laboratory Signage Program

Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) and Facilities Operations have worked together to improve worker protection, emergency response, and security for laboratories using a laboratory notification and warning sign. The goals of the Laboratory Signage Program are to:

  1. Protect human health and safety.
  2. Protect research.
  3. Identify what types of personal protective equipment and information are needed before entering the laboratory to protect oneself or the research in the laboratory.
  4. Provide a flexible program that customizes a laboratory entrance sign for each type of lab that can be updated as the hazards in the lab change.

Laboratory Signs are created through the MyFacilities Signage link. In order to create a sign you must be a registered user.
