EH&S has developed a new document Anesthetic Gases: Safe Use Guidelines and an Anesthetic Gases webpage to help users of anesthetic gases understand the potential health effects from exposure to anesthetic gases, and to provide guidance on minimizing potential exposures. These gases can be separated into two categories: Halogenated anesthetic gases/vapors and nitrous oxide.
The following standard operating procedures (SOPs) are for use by researchers, veterinary services and animal husbandry staff when preparing and handling animal feed or water containing antibiotics, medicines, chemicals, or other agents.
The Animal Husbandry Procedures: Medicine/Chemicals in Animal Drinking Water or Chow is intended for use when changing animal drinking water or show and handling animal cages in case of a spill or floods.
The Researcher and Veterinary Services: Agents in Animal Drinking Water or Feed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is for preparation and handling of animal feed or water containing antibiotics, medicines, chemicals, or other agents.
We partner with the UW community to provide a healthy and safe campus and protect our environment.
