Biological Safety

The safety of all members of the campus community is a primary concern of the University of Houston. The purpose of this program is to promote safety through the proper management of potentially hazardous biological materials. In addition to policies, responsibilities and requirements for working with biological materials, this webpage contains helpful information for the day to day management of your laboratory. For additional information or clarification of the contents of the manual please contact the Biological Safety Manager.

Forms and Manuals

As there is significant overlap within the functional areas of EHLS, it is best to locate a form through the EHLS Forms page, or manual through the EHLS Manuals page. This insures that any and all necessary forms are easily available in one place. The manuals page also includes the laboratory construction and guidelines document to insure that any issues with laboratory construction are corrected in the design phase.
