University personnel working at satellite locations such as the Nutrition Research Institute in Kannapolis or the Carolina Community Academy in Roxboro should use the information below to learn more about Environment, Health and Safety policies and procedures.
For Employees of the Nutrition Research Institute in Kannapolis
“Laboratory Safety Plans” for individual laboratories are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation, “Occupational Exposures to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories,” commonly referred to as the OSHA Laboratory Standard. This standard requires a written plan that sets forth procedures, equipment, personal protective equipment and work practices capable of protecting employees from health hazards presented by the chemicals used in the laboratory. At UNC-Chapel Hill, the complete lab safety plan consists of two components:
- The Laboratory Safety Manual, which covers general safety procedures for University laboratories
- A “Laboratory Safety Plan” prepared by the Principal Investigator to address hazards and precautions specific to a given laboratory
The “Laboratory Safety Plan”
- identifies the hazards in the laboratory
- describes specific handling procedures and precautions for special hazards
- outlines emergency safety procedures in the event of a fire or chemical spill
These safety courses are a requirement for all new employees. Upon completion of the appropriate course, you will have an understanding of University safety policies and procedures. Visit the Employee Orientation page. Once there, choose the work environment that best fits yours. Please remember to take the post-test afterwards.
The Self-Study Unit is a convenient way for University employees to complete the required annual training. Please visit the Self-Study page and select the unit you wish to study. You may choose to click on the post-test link to the right of the course name to go directly to the post-test.
