Lab Safety

UC Merced is committed to ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. Providing safety training is a major component of this goal.
 
The Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) offers training to UC Merced faculty and staff members and students on a variety of safety topics.
 
It is the responsibility of all supervisors, managers and principal investigators to identify job-specific hazards, to provide job-specific safety training and to require employees under their authority to participate in mandatory EH&S lead training.
