For Researchers





As part of our commitment to safety, EHS has commenced the rollout of BioRAFT, an enterprise software solution that will help maintain a healthy and safe environment for Texas A&M and the research community. Our goal is to provide researchers with easy access to their lab’s safety information, reduce administrative burden, and allow EHS personnel to more efficiently manage safety information. BioRAFT will be used to manage records of lab members, training, hazard identification, inspections, reporting, chemical inventory, and more.

Laboratory registration information is used to identify the location of all laboratories and laboratory support facilities, the appropriate contact for each laboratory space, and the hazards in each laboratory. It is also used to determine the appropriate and necessary safety training for all personnel in the laboratory and to facilitate in emergency response preparations.To register your lab, go to and click on the link to enter your Texas A&M University System ID and password. Click here for directions on how to set-up your lab and verify lab spaces.First time users: PIs logging in to BioRAFT for the first time will be prompted to complete the General Lab Set-up Wizard.Returning users: PIs who have already completed the initial set-up may go to their lab profile within BioRAFT to verify their spaces. Contact EHS at if you need to have a space added to your profile.
