CBL Safety

CBL is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for faculty, staff, students, visitors, and volunteers in all CBL buildings and laboratories. This commitment includes:

• Observing and following health and safety regulations, policies, and procedures in compliance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations (MOSH, OSHA, EPA, NFPA, ANSI, NRC, MDE, AND DOT);

• Participating in mandatory health and safety training;

Promptly reporting all safety and health hazards or violations and on-site incidents, injuries, and environmental illnesses; and

• Giving due consideration to personal safety and the safety of others while performing assigned tasks and research.

Each of us should consider safety and environmental stewardship a personal responsibility and take appropriate measures to protect people and the environment. It is important to remember that individual laboratory safety procedures are the responsibility of the PI. Procedures are to be clearly posted and readily available in each laboratory near the entrance. Additionally, emergency contact information is to be posted on each laboratory door (or near the entrance) identifying how to contact the lab staff in the event of an emergency, leak, equipment failure, etc.

CBL has a written Safety Policies that can be found on the shared “P” drive (safety folder) Items of particular importance include:

Emergency Planning, Preparedness and Response Plan

CBL Fire Safety Plan

General Lab Safety Procedures

Personal Protective Equipment Hazard Control

Your cooperation is required and appreciated in promoting a safe campus.
