Lab users are responsible for removing their work materials from workstations as tasks are completed:
- Biosafety cabinets must be decontaminated and free of work materials;
- Bench surfaces must be left clear of glassware, garbage and spills;
- Scales and pH meter must be clean and in proper working condition;
- Waste must be decontaminated and disposed
