Environmental Health and Safety

Lab Safety Awareness Week February 12-16, 2024

Kansas State University Department of Environmental Health and Safety is hosting Laboratory Safety Awareness Week, February 12-16th, 2024. I am inviting YOU and your communities to attend virtually or on campus with us! Please share with your network and attend if you are available.

Whether in a laboratory, the clinic, or the field, researchers are at the heart of making great things possible. Lab Safety Week offers ideas, training, and resources to help keep our researchers safe and healthy.
