Lab and Research

Custom Lab/Research/Studio plans for assets at UMass Dartmouth have been developed to comply with Massachusetts Safety Standards for Laboratories so as to enable activities that are currently allowed by the State Mandatory Safety Standards for Workplaces for the laboratory sector until those standards are rescinded or amended by the State. Each laboratory and studio must meet specific safety:

  • Social Distancing,
  • Hygiene Protocols,
  • Staffing and Operations, and
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting.
