Annual laboratory safety reviews are conducted by the Lab Safety Professionals in EH&S

Lab Safety Reviews during Suspended Operations

In order to support social distancing and allow the maximum flexibility to the research community, the annual Laboratory Safety Reviews and follow-ups will be conducted remotely.

The remote reviews will involve a subset of our checklist (pdf). These checklist items are focused on online safety programs and trainings that can be both inspected remotely and corrected without being in the lab.

The reviews will be completed by Laboratory Safety Professionals as scheduled. A follow-up will occur within 30 days to ensure findings are resolved, answer questions, and to finalize the review.

The Laboratory Safety Professionals are available to review safety documents, provide feedback, and answer any questions you may have.
