Health Safety and Environment (HSE) team
Life sciences research involves working with all kinds of materials that could cause risks to our health and/or our environment. Some examples are hazardous chemicals, pathogens and GMOs with hazardous properties, ionizing radiation, cryogenic fluids, sharps, etc.
We can prevent injuries and incidents, protect the environment and also the unborn child by being attentive and respecting appropriate safety measures and protocols.
Experienced lab technicians and/or lab managers in each lab monitor the good practices in the labs and inform the lab members about the different aspects of safety related to working in our laboratories. In addition, extensive documentation is provided on the intranet pages of the center and the university.
