Safely handle (and prevent) injuries in the lab
Handling lab animals comes with a unique set of risks, and each person in the lab has the responsibility to keep all work areas and lab spaces safe and compliant.
Long pants and closed-toe footwear are required when working with animals. Food and drinks are strictly forbidden in labs that use or house animals. There are also special considerations for lab personnel who have allergies to animals or latex, and for those who are pregnant or think they might be pregnant.
