Fume Hood Testing Update

Jul 14, 2020

Fume hood testing on campus was delayed this spring because of the statewide stay-at-home order for Illinois residents, which extended through May as part of initial COVID-19 response measures. 

Tests are now underway, but a significant number of the fume hoods will be checked outside of the yearly testing period for each unit. Departments should continue to perform daily assessments by observing the flow monitor on the device or using a KimwipeTM in the chemical hood to check for movement. Please contact the F&S Service Office fsserviceoffice@illinois.edu, 217-333-0340, or use the my.FS Portal to submit a request for any equipment needing maintenance or repair.

Thank you for continuing to follow safe work practices while preparing for on-campus educational activities to resume this fall. For questions, email Occupational Safety & Health oshs@illinois.edu.
