The Chemical Safety program at Virginia Commonwealth University is designed to provide the university research community with guidance and resources to ensure the safe acquisition, use, storage, and disposal of hazardous laboratory chemicals.
Environmental Health & Safety staff provides guidance and facilitates compliance by ensuring staff understands and applies safe work practices. Our program also provides principal investigators and lab staff with the information and tools needed to develop a positive safety culture, conduct risk assessments, develop standard operating procedures and ensure that all lab staff are trained on the safe handling of chemicals.
