Significant Achievements- 12/12 Assisted RIVEC researchers on electrical safety and tracer gas exposure issues identified by the Human Subjects Committee. Performed a survey of all research work currently being conducted in EETD to determine applicability to human subjects and electrical safety requirements. Participated on the LBNL haz mat transportation committee. A EETD Safety Committee meeting was held. Work is proceeding on the new EETD safety website. Continued work on removing old chemicals and gas cylinders from EETD lab areas.
Short Term Outlook- 1/13 Assist with the annual department-head safety inspections. Start the “lab housekeeping” self-assessment project. Perform quarterly SAA inspections. Assist EETD researchers on safety issues identified by the Human Subjects Committee. Better define EETD off-site field projects and finalize a process for reviewing their activities. Resolve transport of gas cylinders to off-site research locations. Deploy the new EETD EH&S website. Follow-up on hood sash repair issues identified from the self- assessment project.
