Safety Requirements

    The following items although not related to IACUC, are required prior to initiating animal work:

    • All personnel exposed to animals must be enrolled in the Animal Exposure Program (AEP)
    • Environmental Health & Safety must be contacted so that they can perform a risk assessment, identify any needed EHS Forms and safety trainings, and if Institutional Biosafety Committee review is necessary
    For guidance with these safety requirements, you may go to the Environmental Health and Safety website.
