Environmental Management & Laboratory Safety


As UNLV works towards becoming a Research 1-level institution, the safety of those researchers who come to make Las Vegas their home is paramount. Environmental Management & Laboratory Safety is tasked with ensuring the safety of those working with experiments through our biosafety program, laboratory safety program, and hazardous materials safety program. Risk Management & Safety navigates the federal and state regulations around working with potentially-hazardous materials to let researchers continue their work while ensuring the safety of them and the campus.
