Laboratory Safety

The Bauer Core follows laboratory safety guidelines as determined by Harvard University’s Environmental Health and Safety office.


Individuals must complete and be current on their annual renewal for EH&S Laboratory Safety training before working in the Northwest Laboratory. New core users must be given a core facility safety orientation by core staff before they begin work.

Hazardous Waste

Follow proper guidelines for the handling and disposal of hazardous materials. If you are unsure of these guidelines, please ask a Bauer Core staff member.

BL2 Work

If you would like to bring BL2 level materials into the Bauer Core, please speak to a core staff member. We will help you to determine appropriate safety protocols and will register your work with COMS.
