December Lab Safety News

  • When you go to the “Work Alone” forms, you will find a bit of instruction in the proper way to complete them.  Since they are a part of the “Safety Extravaganza” this might come in handy!
  • The annual update of the Carnegie Mellon Chemical Hygiene Plan has been made and approved by the Lab Safety Committee.  You will find the update at: http://www.cmu.edu/ehs/chemical/CHPFinal.pdf
  • Every three years, you will all receive a message from Michael Patrick, our Laboratory Auditor, asking you to review a brief document designed to refresh you on the elements of Lab Safety and Hazardous Waste, which you would have received in your initial training here are the university.  It is ESSENTIAL that you read the document and promptly return the acknowledgement to Mike.  This is an OSHA requirement.
