1 Environmental Health and Safety meets individually with each new principal investigator in the natural sciences and engineering upon arrival Notification through the Dean of Faculty Sets the tone and introduces the safety and environmental culture of the University Includes a walk-through of the laboratory space or review of the plans for renovation Focuses on role as a supervisor and lab manager Principal Investigator Briefing

2 Policies and procedures related to health and safety Training requirements for those working in the laboratory Emergency preparedness and procedures The Risk Culture in research and academia Requirements for special materials –Radioactive, Homeland Security, pathogenic, etc. Briefing Includes

3 Engineering controls Personal protective equipment –Providing, procuring, writing into grant proposals Waste disposal Hazardous materials shipping Inspections Continuity of operations planning Minors in the lab policies Laboratory security

4 Briefing Includes Profile of research practices Determination of which EHS and safety programs apply (e.g., laser safety, high hazard gas safety, high voltage safety,…) Summary of each program and contact info provided

5 Program History Adopted by University Research Board in 2000 Briefing provided to > 130 new faculty and > 120 lab managers (professional staff, post- docs, graduate students)

6 Better compliance with University and regulatory agency rules Open communication between health and safety groups and the laboratory Accountability Setting the tone at the earliest stage Identification of safety and environmental issues at the outset Results
