Laboratory animal safety

Working safely with animals at IU Bloomington

IU Environmental Health and Safety has developed the Occupational Health and Safety for Animal Users Program to identify hazards involved with animal care and use, assess the risk(s) associated with those hazards, and eliminate or manage the associated risks.

This program is an important part of IU’s Institutional Laboratory Animal Care Program.

The program applies to all animal facility personnel and all persons with direct contact with animals, tissues, or animal by-products held within IU facilities.
