Graduate Student Subcommittee of the Laboratory Safety Committee

You probably know that there is a University Laboratory Safety Committee, consisting of representatives from each university department where laboratories are present.  The committee is designed to address lab safety issues and act as a conduit of information between lab personnel and EH&S.  There is a representative on the committee addressing GRADUATE STUDENTS as well.  The subcommittee contains grad students from each lab department.  Daniel Shiwarski of Biological Sciences is the chair of this committee.  Other members are:  Tanvi Shashikant of Biologocal Sciences, Travis Armiger of Chemical Engineering, Andrew Fassler of Mechanical Engineering, Matha Naganbabu of Chemistry, Ahmed Abdelgawad of MSE, Lauren Strahs of CCE, Josh Worch of Chemistry, Mohamed Darwish of ECE, and Lauren Finkenauer of MSE. If you have any issues relating to lab safety you’d like the Lab Safety Committee to address, please contact one of the representatives on this subcommittee. As people leave teh university to graduate, there are openings on the committee for replacement members. If you are contacted to be on the subcommittee, please consier the request-the subcommittee plays an important role in lab safety!
