Occupational Safety and Health

The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals requires that “an occupational health program must be part of the overall animal care and use program.” The Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP) is an important component of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s institutional animal care and use program. The goal of the occupational health and safety program is to prevent occupational injury and illness by avoiding, controlling or eliminating hazards in the workplace, as well as to provide for early diagnosis and treatment when necessary.
