Chemical Safety Moments

The Chemical Safety Moment serves as a dedicated platform for disseminating essential chemical and laboratory safety knowledge, awareness, training resources, and lessons learned within the University of Houston (UH) research community. Our goal is to share valuable insights on chemical storage, segregation, handling, and disposal, along with the new developments within the UH chemical safety program.

The Chemical Safety Moment will be distributed via Listserv every two months to all UH Principal Investigators (PIs) with chemical permits and their registered laboratory personnel.
