Incidents

In case of emergency, call 911. MSU Police will contact EHS if our assistance is needed (e.g., spill cleanup).

For non-emergency spills / incidents, properly trained employees should follow procedures as outlined in the appropriate EHS manual - Chemical Hygiene Plan, Biosafety Manual, or Radiation Safety Manual.
