This course is meant to provide the student with a basic knowledge of laboratory safety; hazards, regulations, personal protective equipment, good laboratory practice, elementary toxicology, and engineering controls. It has been developed by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering to assist with regulatory compliance, minimize hazards, and reduce the severity of any incidents that may occur in the department’s laboratories. The course is a prerequisite of EN.540.311/EN.540.313. It is required of all Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering undergraduates and graduate students. In addition once per year a three-hour refresher seminar must be taken by all students involved in laboratory research.
In the event of a laboratory incident, employees (i.e anyone on the JHU Payroll) must submit a Johns Hopkins University Incident Report found here. Instructions for submission and reporting are included in the document. This document may also be found outside of the ChemBE Copy Room, Maryland Hall 224C.
