Laboratory Closeout

Are you moving out of a laboratory? Laboratory spaces must be left in safe condition for reoccupancy.

Review the Lab Closeout and Clearance to Work Manual for guidance. 

Complete the Lab Closeout Checklist (Appendix F) to ensure all hazards are addressed and the area is safe for reoccupancy.


To ensure a successful laboratory closeout, contact Safety Services to review requirements a minimum of 6 weeks PRIOR to vacating a lab.

Safety Services will also conduct a final inspection of the lab to ensure that the closeout has been properly completed.
