Safety@TTU Kicks Off

Texas Tech will once again focus on Safety@TTU during September. Safety@TTU is a campaign designed to provide safety information, tips and reminders to faculty, staff and students.

This year Safety@TTU coincides with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Biosafety Stewardship Month. NIH is asking that TTU and other institutions with NIH funding take a renewed look at biosafety practices, training, and inventories of infectious agents and toxins in all of our laboratories.

You’ll see safety information throughout the month of September on our Safety@TTU blog, including:
  • What safety training is available to faculty, staff and students.
  • Who needs to take Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) assessment? The CHP is the university’s safety plan when working with chemical and physical hazards.
  • A look at a newly released National Academies of Science/National Research Council Report of Laboratory Safety.
  • A variety of resources for safety information.
Safety@TTU is a collaborative effort from the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Office of the Provost, and the Division of Environmental Health and Safety to remind faculty, staff and students that safety is everyone’s job.
