Laboratory Registration

Each room or space that is designated as laboratory space, must register with EHS. Registration is accomplished by submitting the Laboratory Sign Form. Any change in the laboratory contacts or hazard level designation (i.e., Chemical Safety Level, Biosafety Level, Radiation use, or laser class as applicable), requires re-submitting the form.

Lab Signs

Each exterior laboratory door to the corridor must be posted with current contact information, emergency and hazard information in compliance with the KSU Laboratory Signage requirements. These signs will be posted on the door or on the wall immediately adjacent to the door. Additional laboratory hazard or warning signage may be required, but should be reviewed by EHS or the KSU Fire Marshal as applicable. These include, but are not limited to additional radiation signage, laser warning signage, energy hazards, or similar warning or danger instructions required by regulation or policy.

Signs must be reviewed for accuracy and updated annually or more frequently as procedures, requirements, contacts or information changes. If a sign become damaged, faded, or vandalized, they must be replaced. The date of revision must be visible.

Limited radiation signs are provided by the Radiation Safety Officer. All other signs are the responsibility of the laboratory.
