Hazardous waste pick-ups occur every 3 months at the Denver Campus. Please refer to chemical waste management guidelines for procedures on proper management of hazardous materials and waste. If you need chemical waste labels or containers, please contact Heather Powell. For details on the waste pick-up procedure, please contact the Hazardous Materials group
The chemical inventory system at the Denver Campus is called CisPro, and it is administered by AHEC. For more information about CisPro, please contact Brian O’Connor.
Small-group laboratory safety orientation for potential interns occurs the third Friday of every month in the Experiential Learning Center (Tivoli 260). Please contact Michael Wilson
about establishing a laboratory internship and attending EH&S orientation.
Laboratory compliance audits at the Denver Campus are performed on a yearly basis by Heather Powell. The audit encompasses training, waste and chemical storage, engineering controls, PPE, chemical inventory, and more. The audit is meant to assist in compliance with federal, state, and private entity regulations, which can lead to uninterrupted and productive research. If you would like to learn more about the compliance audit, or if you would like to schedule a preparatory pre-audit Courtesy Visit, please contact Heather Powell.
If you plan to initiate a new laboratory on the Denver Campus, you’ll need to start with a UC Denver Laboratory Registration form. After that, you may work on a Biosafety Registration with the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). A great way to get started on the right foot is to schedule a meeting with Heather Powell, during which you can discuss training, waste, equipment, compliance audits, and more.
Equipment that has been exposed to chemical, biological, or radiological hazards must be Green Tagged before it can be moved, repaired, or disposed of. For more information about the protocol, please visit the Green Tagging website. For other questions about equipment disposal, please contact Heather Powell.
