The EHS Department supports the ISU Institutional Animal Care and Use committee/program by providing occupational health and safety resources. Working with individual Principal Investigators to complete a Risk Assessment for each protocol is a major aspect of this support.
The purpose of the IACUC RISK ASSESSMENT is to identify, evaluate, manage and reduce potential health and safety risks associated with an individual's exposure to animals and other hazards. Completed and signed Risk Assessments are required prior to final approval of a protocol. Three major Risk Assessment forms are available here.
