The Department Safety Coordinator role varies with the departments, based on size, needs, and goals.

Although we enjoy a close working relationship with our EH&S colleagues, we serve the basic science researchers in the School of Medicine in a different way.

Minors under the age of 14 are not permitted in University of California laboratories or shops, except when participating in an approved and supervised tour. See the CPSC’s Guidelines for Lab Tours for information about how to plan a suitable tour for anyone, including minors.
