About the Office for Research Safety
The Office for Research Safety (ORS) is a service unit under the Office for Research, although the ORS mission is University-wide. ORS has offices on both campuses staffed by specialists in chemical, biological, radiation, and general-laboratory safety.
ORS helps faculty, staff, students, and visitors to work safely, to create safe workplaces, and to achieve and maintain compliance related to health, safety, and protection of the environment.
In carrying out this mission ORS performs a basic risk management function in facilitating protection of University and individual interests against loss from injury, accident, civil or criminal penalties, and litigation.
