Biosafety Program

  • The goal of the Biosafety Program is to protect laboratory workers, the environment, and the community from exposure to biohazardous materials while protecting the integrity of experimental materials. 

    EHS works with the UMES Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) to prevent exposure by assisting researchers in conducting risk assessments and providing guidance to laboratory personnel on the microbiological practices, safety equipment and facilities under which biohazardous materials can be safely manipulated.

    EHS is charged with ensuring that laboratories on campus are in compliance with University policies and all regulatory health and safety requirements for working with biohazardous materials.

    For compliance with grants and other grant-related issues, contact the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs.
