The goal of the laboratory safety program at Hampshire is to create and maintain a safe and healthful teaching and research environment; teach safe practices; and promote safety awareness. To accomplish this goal, the College requires that students, staff, faculty, and visitors adhere to the safety policies and procedures established in the Cole Science Center Laboratory Safety Manual. Many departments and faculty members establish additional, or more specific, safety requirements for their laboratories. The safety manual addresses chemical safety, biological safety, radiation safety, use of machine tools, and requirements for waste disposal. It also establishes administrative procedures for training, exposure monitoring, and medical evaluation.
