Laboratory safety

Help us make Karolinska Institutet a safer, more secure and more sustainable workplace.

When you report an incident in the lab, a stolen bag, a chemical spillage or the like, you help us find short and long-term solutions to problems.

All chemicals used in the KI laboratory activities - with the exception of medicines and drugs - should be recorded in KLARA, and inventoried in KLARA at the beginning of each year. KLARA provides instructions on how registration and inventory should be conducted.
