Generic laboratory safety risk assessment

Download the Laboratory Safety Standard and risk assessment template. Complete the risk assessment form to assess the risks while working in the laboratory.

The University's Safety Standard for Working in Laboratories sets out the University's arrangements for identifying, assessing and managing the general risks associated with working in laboratories. The standard also sets out roles and responsibilities of people responsible for managing or working within these settings.

The generic risk assessment template can be used to identify potential hazards and the means for managing associated risks. Departments are responsible for amending the template as necessary to fit the context of the laboratories (and work done) under their control.

These documents were reviewed and agreed by UHSC in June 2023. The next scheduled review is by end of June 2026.
