All established laboratory space in which human cadavers/cadaveric tissue is planned to be utilized must first be approved by the Department of Environmental Health & Safety of either the University of Pittsburgh or UPMC, whichever is applicable according to the space location. If the space has not been approved, please contact the OOAS so that an inspection can be coordinated with EH&S. Please refer to the checklist for guidelines on laboratory security, training and safety.
If space is planned for rennovation with the intent to use it for work with human cadaveric tissue, please complete, sign and submit the Request for Approval of Laboratory Space to the OOAS for review. Once approved, a request will be sent to EH&S to schedule an inspection.
