In the event you have been injured or exposed to hazardous materials or equipment in a research laboratory, please do the following:

  1. Immediately access medical treatment if needed by visiting Occupational Health or the Student Health Center if open and the VUMC Emergency Department if they are closed or the injury/exposure is serious.
  2. Notify Vanderbilt by reporting information about your situation here, clicking on “Occurrence Reporting”, and then choosing “Event Location” and “Research Lab”. A tutorial on how to complete the occurrence report is available here. You will be able to upload pictures or videos as well as details of what happened.
