OUR: All Things Lab Safety

Are you interested in conducting research in a laboratory? Prior to stepping inside a UNLV lab and working alongside faculty research mentors, undergraduate researchers are required to take a chemical hygiene training course. This workshop, facilitated by Risk Management & Safety (RMS), fulfills this requirement. RMS staff will cover a variety of lab safety techniques and hazards to avoid.

Learning Objectives

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Understand the mechanics of lab safety
  • Learn the types of hazards that exist inside a research lab and how to safely conduct research with chemicals and other agents
  • Learn about the required precautions when conducting research in a lab


  • Julie Bertoia, Technical Quality Assurance Specialist, Department of Chemistry
