This page will contain pointers to information new JHU affiliates need to know about lab safety, but it’s waiting on a project to identify exactly what those resources are and, if they don’t exist, to create them.
For now, we recommend that at a minimum, you review the information in the online Introduction to Laboratory Safety course, available on the JHU myLearning portal. This is accessible from your my.jhu.edu page, on the Education tab.
First-year graduate students should take EN500.601, Research Laboratory Safety, for 1 credit, given Fall and Spring semesters. This class covers lab safety information and its application to real-world lab experiments. It is open to students from both the School of Engineering and the School of Arts & Sciences.
