Welcome to the Health and Safety Resources Page for
DEH Faculty and Staff. The purpose of this page is to bring together
resources you may need to perform your research safely and legally.
The University of Cincinnati accepts Federal money
to fund research. Tied to that money are health and safety
requirements You, as the principle or co-investigator, are responsible
for ensuring compliance with all health and safety regulations that
apply to your research.
The DEH Health and Safety Committee is not a regulatory or enforcement
group. The Committee exists to provide you, the researcher, with
easier access to information and the University groups that officially
oversee regulatory compliance associated with regulated research
The regulated areas addressed here are: Chemical Safety, Biological
Materials Safety, Animal Care and Radioactive Safety One area not
addressed, but having important, pre-use requirements is research
involving human subjects; however, a brief note on this area is
included at the bottom of this page.
