Animal Research Occupational Health and Safety Plan

Research presents risks for people who may come into contact with either wild or vivarium-housed research animals, while performing work, research or education.

These risks range from exposure to agents used during experiments, to reactions by people to the animals in use, or due to past exposures to chemicals, materials or animals.

The Animal Research Occupational Health and Safety Plan is provided by the IACUC.
