Fume Hoods

Carnegie Mellon University has developed a Fume Hood Policy to ensure that fume hoods are properly used and maintained. 

  • If your fume hood is not working, Request a Repair from Facilities Management Services.
  • After any hood repair or maintenance, call EH&S (8x8182) to request a hood recertification by EH&S before starting work.
