Please Note:
All visitors are required to read and sign a waiver prior to using WSBS facilities. The waiver will be provided upon check-in at WSBS.

Chemicals and Lab Supply
WSBS has available very limited quantities of chemicals and lab supplies. Communicate your requirements at least two months in advance of arrival.

Chemical Waste
Visitors are personally responsible for the disposal of their toxic chemicals. Visitors must assure that their waste is safely contained, packaged and labeled.

WSBS insurance does not cover non-WSBS personnel or equipment; therefore you must provide your own insurance for health, accident, theft, equipment damage, loss and liability, including medical evacuation coverage. We require that all group leaders carry liability insurance, with WSBS as a named insured on the policy. All ship and other boat users are required to sign waivers prior to boarding.
