Laboratory Emergency Preparedness


The University of Toronto encourages appropriate emergency response to maintain safety of students, staff, visitors, and university property within the campus building. Each laboratory in the Department of Chemistry is responsible for developing their individual emergency response plan. There may be some labs with specific procedures not outlined in this document.


The Emergency Preparedness Plan developed for Lash Miller Laboratories at the University of Toronto is designed to provide a guideline when developing laboratory-specific emergency response procedures and to provide information for preparing, preventing and responding to emergencies.
