The Animals Administered a Hazardous Substance Requiring Containment Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) has recently been updated.
Every individual who may perform procedures that involve the handling of animals or animal equipment contaminated with hazardous substances must read the SOP in its entirety to ensure that they are familiar with, and adhere to, all required procedures.
Posters summarizing key SOP changes will be placed in affected animal care facilities and will be separated by individual roles and responsibilities (i.e., one poster will detail changes impacting ULAM personnel and one poster will detail changes impacting research personnel).
All individuals, including ULAM staff and research personnel, are expected to follow all new and revised procedures as outlined in the SOP by Friday, May 19, 2023.
Questions or concerns about the updated Animals Administered a Hazardous Substance Requiring Containment SOP should be directed to your facility’s ULAM Husbandry Supervisor .
General questions pertaining to lab safety should be directed to the department of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) at EHS-AnimalSafety@umich.edu or (734) 647-1143.
