At ECU it is mandatory for any person working within a laboratory setting to complete the laboratory safety quiz. This quiz prepares a volunteer for working safely within a lab environment by informing them of possible dangers in the lab and precautions that can be taken to avoid those dangers. More information about the laboratory safety quiz is available here.
