Spill Control and Response

For many spills, the correct response is evacuation and calling X3500. If the spill is not immediately hazardous (corrosives, for example) this spill video offers some good advice on how to respond.  Druckenmiller Hall's spill response cart is in Corridor 55 near the MSDS archives

Laboratory Inspection Program

Lab Supervisors, PI's and Lab Instructors are  required to perform annual self-inspections of their lab spaces .  These inspections are to be done at the beginning of the Fall semester and the completed Inspection Checklists are to be submitted to the Office of Laboratory Safety by September 30.  Click HERE for a PDF of the Laboratory Inspection Checklist

In addition to Self-Inspections, the Bowdoin College Office of Environmental Health and Safety will conduct routine safety audits of science laboratories and spaces.
