Working with hazardous items

Hazardous itemsAnimal experiments often involve the use of drugs, chemicals, micro-organisms, biological materials, radioactive substances, etc., which may pose a hazard to scientists, animal caretakers and personnel who handle waste and used cages.

The Department will, in cooperation with you, decide on protective measure to be used in the individual experiments. These measures will be written into your project plan.

For chemicals, AEM uses the database Kemibrug to identify hazard. The researcher should check that the chemicals - including pharmaceutical compounds - that are going to be used in their experiment are listed in Kemibrug; if not they should contact Kemibrug to have them included.
