Animal Research Occupational Health & Safety Plan
Research presents risks for people who may come into contact with either wild or vivarium-housed research animals, while performing work, research or education.
These risks range from exposure to agents used during experiments, to reactions by people to the animals in use, or due to past exposures to chemicals, materials or animals.
The Animal Research Occupational Health & Safety Plan is provided by the IACUC.
Working in accordance with the Plan is required to ensure the your safety and the stability of the lab environments associated with animal research.
The Plan set of documents begins with the Overview and continues through a set of documents to be completed.
