The establishment and operation of U.S. university’s EHS were further introduced. With combination of main problems about laboratory safety management of universities in China, we put forward to construct, develop and enrich the laboratory safety culture in Chinese Universities, which is one of the most fundamental construction tasks, in order to cause great attention of college management department and into action.
