Health and safety
Details of our Health and Safety protocols can be found in our Lab Safety Binder located at the entrance to 212 Votey. A binder of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) is located with this binder. All visitors should contact Dr. Scarborough for a laboratory tour. All personnel working in the lab are required to complete safety training as required by UVM Risk Management and Safety.
