Minors in Labs

Research Safety & Industrial Hygiene

Children under the age of 18 are not permitted in any laboratory area where hazardous, biological or radioactive materials are used or stored, unless it is in the context of a scheduled, approved, and properly supervised activity. The Minors in Laboratories and Animal Facilities Administrative Policy​ provides more information.

University Risk Management provides information and required forms regarding the presence of minors in campus environments.

Minors also must take the same safety training required of all lab members. EHS will provide hard copy training and tests for:

·         Lab Safety

·         Chemical Waste Management

·         Bloodborne Pathogens

·         Regulated Medical Waste Management
