Policy on People Not Affiliated with Penn Who Work in University Labs
During the summer many students and other people unaffiliated with Penn work in University laboratories. To provide for their safety and to ensure compliance with applicable regulations, the University has established the following guidelines:
1. All non-affiliated individuals who work in laboratories must attend mandatory training programs on biological and chemical safety offered by the Office of Environmental Health and Radiation Safety (EHRS).
For information on scheduling of these programs, call (215) 898-4453 or check the training calendar on the website www.ehrs.upenn.edu.
2. Individuals who work in laboratories must participate in officially-sponsored University educational programs or activities. Such programs or activities must be approved by the Dean of the sponsoring School. The EHRS should be consulted to review approved programs to ensure relevant safety issues have been addressed.
Call Bob Leonzio at (215) 898-4453 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
