Health and Safety
EMBL's Health and Safety Office, led by Corinna Gorny, is concerned with all work-related aspects of safety, in particular biological, chemical and radiation safety, at all EMBL sites.
Amongst its tasks are registration procedures, inspections of laboratories and workplaces, hazardous waste management and conducting safety training.
In order to provide safe and healthy working conditions to all EMBL staff and visitors, and to support them in carrying out their duties smoothly and safely, the team sets a high value on preventive measures. They oversee EMBL's medical service and provide for an extensive first aid structure.
