Lab Safety Practices and Training

An important goal of University of Pacific is the implementation of practices to provide adequate control of health and safety risks arising from work and learning activities. We achieve this by providing a range of tools for users, including but not limited to a Chemical Hygiene, Biosafety and Radiation Safety programs.   We also undertake relevant risk assessments, including site inspections to help identify and ensure action required to remove/control risks. We will periodically confirm that the implemented actions have removed/reduced the risks and will report the findings of the risk assessments to all relevant employees.
