Institutional Laboratory Safety Committee

chemistry laboratory

The Institutional Laboratory Safety Committee (ILSC) is a faculty-led committee charged with improving the safety culture in research facilities, art studios, teaching facilities, and field research sites. The committee focuses on both human health protection and hazardous risk reduction in these facilities.

The 16-person committee, in part, will establish policies and procedures based on current best practice by a number of national professional groups. It also is charged with providing administrative advice regarding laboratory safety and reviewing and implementing the U.S. Chemical Safety Board recommendations and additional university recommendations issued following a January 2010 laboratory accident.
