All laboratories (chemical, biological, and radiological) must be cleared by Environmental Health and Safety prior to being remodeled, renovated, or cleaned. Housekeeping and/ or Facilities will not commence without a written safety clearance.
If laboratories were used to store or process radioactive material, the Radiation Safety Division will perform wipe tests.
BEFORE SUBMITTING A LAB CLEARANCE REQUEST, PLEASE READ THE REQUIREMENTS BELOW:
- Make sure all Chemical, Biological, and Radiological elements (unwanted chemicals, radioactive waste, bio boxes) have been removed from the Lab.
Make sure all intended equipment has been cleared and that storage locations have been secured (if applicable.)
Make sure all drawers and cabinets have been emptied.
The Laboratory must be completely emptied before Environmental Health and Safety will clear it.
If all requirements have been met, please proceed to the next page.
