Lab Hazardous Waste

Hazardous Waste Information

Laboratories generate the majority of the hazardous waste on campus. Information on hazardous waste can be found on the Hazardous Waste page in the Hazardous Materials section. Be sure to check out the resources for Labs.

Remember the Training Requirement

  • If you generate or work with hazardous waste, you must have annual documented training.
  • If you work with chemicals but do not handle or generate hazardous waste, we strongly recommend that you complete the training as it addresses issues of spills and accidental releases.
  • Most scheduled General Lab Safety Classes (classroom sessions) also include a  Hazardous Waste Training module.

There is a course available on Canvas or you may complete this via a classroom course. Visit the training page for more to link to Canvas or for other information.
