The Laboratory Safety Committee works to promote a culture of safety within the Middlebury Sciences.  Members serve as liaisons to their respective departments, and work with the Chemical Hygiene Officer to regularly review, update, improve and implement Middlebury’s Chemical Hygiene Plan.

The Middlebury Sciences Environmental Health and Safety Working Group is an ad hoc group composed of Middlebury support staff, including Middlebury's Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator and Chemical Hygiene Officer.  The group meets regularly to develop and prioritize lab safety initiatives and training, and to provide support to the Laboratory Safety Committee.
