Laboratory Door Signs

Each Principal Investigator must display a laboratory door sign for each of their labs that use hazardous materials.

Door signage can be provided for laboratories and areas that use hazardous material. The signage complies with applicable regulations and provides a consistent look for all campus locations where hazardous materials are in use. Information on the sign can inform staff and emergency responders to the types of hazards that are in the lab and if any precautions are required. The sign also provides contact information of who to notify in case of an emergency in the room or area.

Example of a lab door sign indicating what hazards are in the lab, and emergency contact information.
