Any time a principal investigator vacates a lab, moves into a lab, or relocates to a different lab, an opening or closing form should be filed with the Office of Research Safety (ORS).
Information from the forms helps ORS properly track chemical inventories, perform accurate lab inspections, and monitor hazardous waste generation. It helps ensure the accuracy of UGA’s chemical inventory system and helps maintain the safety of UGA faculty, students, and local first responders. The form for opening or closing/re-locating a lab can be submitted online.
More information, along with the opening & closing/re-locating forms can be found here: https://research.uga.edu/safety/chemical-laboratory/opening-closing-lab/
