The purpose of the BioCentury Research Farm (BCRF) Safety Manual is to provide users with information designed to ensure health and safety. This manual is not intended to be all-inclusive, but should serve instead to supplement more specific procedures developed for specific activities. All BCRF personnel and users must have access to this document as a basis for working safely in BCRF facilities. 

In addition, the Iowa State University Laboratory Safety Manual outlines appropriate practices, university policies, and other regulations that must be followed in a laboratory setting.
