Culture of Responsibility

While our safety teams provide expert guidance and training on the handling of biohazardous materials, laboratory personnel are ultimately responsible for the application of knowledge and safe practices gained through consultation with our staff. Therefore, it is essential that individuals maintain a certain level of responsibility while working with hazardous materials at the University of Chicago.

To better understand your responsibilities and the responsibilities of others, learn who does what and read the codes of conduct and reporting guidelines below. If you have a safety concern, report it.
