We’ll offer a thought-provoking plenary session and variety of technical topics, and you can participate from the safety and comfort of your home or office.

Reopening the Lab during Covid-19

A live panel discussion presented by I2SL St. Louis Chapter

Join the I2SL St. Louis Chapter this Wednesday June 24, 2020, at 2 p.m. CST, for the panel discussion, Navigating Lab Startup and Return to Work. As the country has been shut down for the better part of three months due to COVID-19-and as we start to reopen for researchers, educators, and students heading back to their labs and offices-laboratory environments require special considerations because of the ongoing research, special environmental controls, chemicals, and other hazards. Authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration should be the primary resources on safely returning to work, as well as guidance from your facility Environmental Health and Safety officers. Our panelists include EH&S directors and staff from universities and corporations including laboratory architects, engineers, and planners.
