Environmental Health and Safety has developed Safety Shorts specifically to notify the UAB research community of updates to Research Safety programs and changes in State and U.S. government regulations that effect UAB labs. Safety Shorts also address compliance issues, send reminders about lab safety during specific times of the year (such as summer and PPE), and announce Lab Safety Workshops and other relevant information that may affect lab research personnel at UAB.

Safety Shorts are sent directly to your e-mail account and are published in PDF format. Safety Shorts are archived below for reference.
