Rice's Environmental Health and Safety Department provides support to the Rice Community in biological safety by setting guidelines for the handling of bloodborne pathogens, microbial waste, recombinant DNA, and select agents and toxins. The department also works with local, state and federal agencies to ensure compliance with government codes and policies and assure everyone that Rice University is a safe place to work and study.
