Laboratory Closeout/Relocation

Moving a laboratory is a complex process with many items that must be addressed in order to fully closeout the space being vacated.

Laboratory/Research groups leaving the University or relocating to a new location on campus are required to complete the EHS laboratory closeout/relocation process to ensure that the lab is properly closed out and potential hazards are not left behind.

The Closeout/Relocation process is tracked in the Safety Administrative Management (SAM) system.

To begin the closeout process please notify EHS at

Once notification has been made using the email address above the lab contact will receive an email asking them to complete a simple 2 minute questionnaire.  The information from the questionnaire will be used to assign a closeout/relocation self checklist that will assist lab personnel with completing all required closeout activities.

Once the closeout/relocation checklist is complete and submitted, the system will assign a final walk-through inspection with an EHS specialist to verify that all closeout steps have been completed.
