Department Safety

This page contains links to the Chemistry department’s internal safety documents and training aids, as well as links to external sources of information.  Although the internal documents are, of course, in many ways specific to Aubert Hall and the Chemistry Department, they may prove useful as models for other programs and departments. Feel free to copy them, or to link our safety site to yours as an additional resource for your staff and students.
