Chemistry Graduate Program

Safety

All new graduate students must participate in the safety portion of the orientation program held prior to registration in the Fall semester, and must be familiar with the Department’s Chemical Hygiene Plan and Safety Regulations and the University’s Hazardous Chemicals and Hazardous Materials Waste Management Program before they begin work in teaching or research laboratories.

Any graduate student who fails to attend required chemical hygiene or safety training sessions and who has not already submitted a written explanation, will receive a written inquiry. The individual will have seven (7) working days in which to respond with an explanation and a signed agreement to attend the next session. Willful disregard of the Department's Chemical Hygiene and Safety Regulations or the University’s Hazardous Chemicals and Hazardous Materials Waste Management Program will be dealt with by the Chair of the Department.
