Significant Safety Achievements- 8/13 A great deal of progress was made in disposal of numerous old chemical samples and glassware in labs 62-102, 62-316, 70-163, and 70-249. Approximately 350 old chemical containers have been collected in EETD lab areas. A Safety Alert was issued regarding possible damage when leaning on sit-stand desk tops. A Safety Alert was issued regarding disposal of old chemical samples from lab areas. A check list was developed for researchers/students leaving LBNL. The purpose is to account for samples and experiments left in hoods and glove boxes. I gave a lab safety presentation at the County of Santa Claras 28 th annual safety seminar.
Short Term Safety Outlook- 9/13 Complete the Office Electrical Safety self-assessment project and submit final report to OCA. Complete lab cleanup efforts and close the open CATS item. All old chemicals identified in lab areas will be removed. Finalize the 2014 EETD self-assessment project plan and submit to OCA. Complete installation of vinyl protective floor mats in office areas with bare ACM containing floor tiles. Assist in the lab move for 62-138/150 up to 62-342. Implement a new electronic lab inspection form for easier monthly lab area inspection documentation. Start Chemical Management System (CMS) inventory updates in EETD lab areas. Work with EHS on CMS improvements.
