If you're experiencing issues with a fume hood, don't hesitate to reach out. For emergencies, such as a gas leak, call us immediately at 212-305-HELP (4357), option 3. For less urgent issues, such as a light that's gone out, submit a work request.
On occasion, we may conduct electrical shutdowns for necessary repairs and maintenance. During shutdowns that affect fume hoods, we strongly encourage laboratories to suspend all work involving hazardous materials for the duration of the shutdown, and to not use fume hoods until they have been re-certified by Environmental Health and Safety.
We will repair gas leaks, broken lights, and the sash at no cost, and will disconnect and reconnect the hood at no cost either. If you are planning to replace or relocate the hood, please engage our team to do the disconnecting and reconnecting.
