New Incident Response Poster

Here are the A,B,C's of a biological incident. Hang this poster in your lab, vivarium and work areas to inform people of the correct response to a biological incident.

Did you say "Oops"?  Were you working with any kind of animal or biological material?  More than likely you should call Biosafety at 310-825-9797.  All biological incidents need to be reported to Biosafety within 8 hours.  

To make this easier for you, Biosafety now has a hotline where you can leave a message 24 hours a day and Biosafety personnel will call you back within a few minutes.  To promote these changes and encourage reporting across UCLA, a new "ABC" poster is now available through EH&S, to post in labs, offices and vivariums.

The reporting process is never intended to be punitive, but aids Biosafety in preventing future accidents and helps to maintain regulatory compliance.
