It is vital that everyone know how to work in a lab safely and responsibly. Before you take part in any activities in the lab, please review the following lab policies and manuals (as pdf files). Further, you should browse the Dalhousie Safety Website for comprehensive information about working in a research lab. You should regularly visit this page for updated information and workshop dates.
Most of these resources can also be found as hard copies in the lab manual which is available in LSC Rm. 3078.
If you do not have a program to view pdf files, please download Adobe Reader for free.
