ASU orientation session aims to help researchers


March 10, 2008

A new or established researcher orientation session will take place from noon to 1 p.m., March 26, at the University Club’s Thoren Room on the Tempe campus. A complimentary lunch will be served and seating is limited. Parking is free.

This orientation has assisted researchers with laboratory setup, waste management and the development of safety procedures. The orientation is constantly updated and provides pertinent information for established researchers and researchers beginning a new area of research.

The orientation also provides an opportunity for researchers to meet with Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) and the Office of Vice President for Research and Economic Affairs professionals that assist them with compliance with EH&S and research policies and procedures.

Participants receive an overview of the various types of regulations and university policies affecting research projects, especially those conducted in laboratories and using potentially hazardous materials.

The orientation establishes a “quick start” to streamline research startup laboratory and/or field research operations. Attending orientation will help principal investigations, lab managers, and academic professionals establish research operations in a more expedient manner.
