Lab and shop deactivation is dependent on the history of work or research conducted in the space.
Chemical decontamination of spaces and equipment may be done by the following personnel:
- Laboratory supervisors, researchers, or investigators who can effectively disinfect the equipment themselves and provide certification by signing EH&S’ Facilities/Equipment Decontamination Clearance Certification.
- Hazardous Materials contractors approved to provide such services to the campus, managed by EH&S under current contracts.
Biosafety cabinets will require fumigation or other disinfection techniques by a specialized contractor approved to do such work under our Biosafety program.
