Research and Laboratory Safety

Environmental, Health and Safety works in a close partnership with faculty, researchers, staff and students to ensure and promote a safe laboratory environment. The NMSU administration recognizes that research excellence and safety are inextricably intertwined and have affirmed their commitment to this concept in an open letter to the university research community.  EH&S offers a variety of services, tools and guidance to help researchers seamlessly integrate safety into the research process. Guidelines and resources can be found under the links below and on other EH&S web site pages.
