Any new project involving particularly hazardous substances or equipment will be subject to review by the Laboratory Supervisor, Safety Committee or the Chemical Hygiene Officer or his/her designee to assure that all safety considerations are in place prior to ordering or implementation. While EHRS and the Safety Committee can provide assistance in identifying circumstances when there should be prior approval before implementation of a particular laboratory operation, the ultimate responsibility of establishing prior approval procedures lies with the laboratory supervisor or principal investigator.

Approval to proceed with a project should be obtained:
