Laboratory Safety Colloquium
Join Mark Robertson, UNL Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, for the Fall Laboratory Safety Colloquium, “DISASTER! Protect Yourself & Your Research” on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. There will be two sessions for your convenience. Select the one that works best: 10 a.m. – noon at East Campus Union OR 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Hamilton Hall, Room 102.
Natural and man-made disasters can result in loss of property, life, data, and access to critical research facilities. Plan to attend if you work in any kind of research laboratory. Learn new skills to help you pre-plan and mitigate adverse consequences, both short- and long-term.
