Research at UNCG is a collaborative effort, which has both local and global impact. Central to the university's mission of teaching, research and service, laboratory employees collaborate in a quest to translate advances in research into applications that are life-saving and life-enriching. Safe laboratory practices are fundamental to the research process. The UNCG Chemical Hygiene Plan is a written program that sets forth procedures, equipment and work practices that protect employees from laboratory hazards. All laboratory personnel must know and follow the procedures outlined in this plan. Click on the following link to review the UNCG Chemical Hygiene Plan.
