What is the EHS database?

The EHS database is a module of the ARISE platform that is currently in use by the Research Ethics Office and NIH conflict of interest administrator.


How does the database benefit me?

The database provides the following benefits to university researchers:

  • Online registration of laboratories, workshops, studios, or any other research environment
  • Easy updating of hazard, equipment, and personnel information
  • Ability to print hazard signage for doors
  • Immediate notification of findings from worksite inspections
  • Ability to request assistance with shipping of biological materials to or from the university
  • Shared database with Research Ethics Office and conflict of interest application

How do I register in the database?

All principal investigators (PIs) who work with hazardous materials at the U of A must register in the database. To get started, follow the step by step instructions provided in the EHS database manual.
