Laboratory Inspections

Welcome to the Clemson University Occupational and Environmental Safety Laboratory Inspection website! The main goal of the inspection website is to help researchers and support staff achieve the highest level of success on annual laboratory inspections. The goals and objectives of the inspection itself can be found here. All the information you need to be successful can be found below. The laboratory inspection SOP, found here, outlines the roles of the inspector, our office and the research lab, including how much notice will be given prior to inspection.
