“Safe Research is Smart Research: Working Proactively with UGA Research Safety”

Friday, May 12, 2023 at 11 a.m.


  • Zeke Barrera, director, Office of Research Safety
  • Brandon Foskey, chemical safety officer, Office of Research Safety
  • Brandon Jordan, senior radiation safety & compliance officer, Office of Research Safety

Advance notification from faculty regarding laboratory closings, decommissions, renovations or relocations—ideally during the planning stage—is a key factor in minimizing disruptions to research activity, financial resources and safe environments. Providing such early notification, and allowing sufficient time to prepare, assess and exercise an action plan, is key to avoiding faculty and staff frustration. Join the Office of Research Safety for this session of Research Live, which will cover issues such as equipment relocation and installation, chemical waste management, lost or stolen laboratory-related resources, sponsored project considerations, planning and cost estimates, and compliance with regulatory agencies regarding hazardous, protected and regulated materials. Our team will share examples to highlight the need for faculty understanding and compliance with relevant safety policies.
