Welcome to the new EHS newsletter, Spotlight on Safety! We hope you enjoy all the useful information in this and every issue (scroll down for more great EHS content). 

Spotlight on Safety replaces The Waste Paper, our longstanding publication for laboratory users. While  The Waste Paper served us well , we want to ensure we reach the entire campus community when it comes to health and safety.

Spotlight on Safety will cover a range of topics, from workplace safety and occupational health and wellness, to information on training and other educational opportunities. Of course, we will also continue to address lab safety and proper waste disposal practices.

Look for us in your inbox four times a year, with occasional alerts in between. Feel free to forward this email. Members of the University community can subscribe here:

Leaving So Soon? Lab Closeout Procedures
Planning to graduate or leave Princeton for greener pastures? (Not that we know of any!) Here are some procedures to follow before leaving your lab space for good.

If you are looking to dispose of an entire stock of chemicals, EHS may be able to arrange for help from our waste contractor. Please give advanced notice for scheduling.
