Inspections

Lab peer inspections are integral to our safety program. SEAS subcommittees are formed each year and are responsible for inspecting each research facility in SEAS. Each fall semester, the chairpersons of these teams draw up inspection schedules. These schedules are distributed to all the Safety Officers and to the lab Principal Investigators. After an inspection, the results are documented in the form of a memo to the P.I. with a copy going to the Safety Committee chair and to the Administrative Dean and/or the Director of the Physics Laboratories. If necessary, the results are discussed verbally with the P.I. or his/her delegate.

Within a month's time, the local Safety Officer for that area checks to see if the appropriate action has been taken. If problems still exist, they are brought to the attention of the chair of the Safety Committee. A month after the initial report, a follow-up report is given by the local Safety Officer.
