Lab Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT)

Lab Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT) is a web-based application that enables researchers to identify hazards in their labs or research areas. Upon completion of LHAT, you will receive a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) recommendation voucher—based on your lab’s assessment—that will make you eligible for the EH&S free PPE giveaway program.

Note: It may take up to a day for roster changes on L@B to reflect on LHAT. Please contact service@...
