Mercury Thermometer Exchange Program


In an effort to reduce risks associated with mercury thermometers the Environmental Health and Safety Department in association with the office of Sustainability via a Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund grant are introducing a thermometer exchange program. This program, funded by U of U students, will replace mercury containing laboratory thermometers with a non-Hg alternative of equivalent accuracy at no cost to the lab.

How to Exchange

There are two steps to exchanging your current mercury thermometer. The first step is to request a replacement using the form below. The second step is to request a pick up of the mercury thermometer through our Lab Management System. You may need to register for an LMS account and take some training if you have not already done so.
