Davis College Safety Committee

The Davis College Safety Committee will foster a culture that prioritizes laboratory safety in both research and classroom settings. Specific responsibilities include: facilitating a system to ensure that faculty, staff, and student workers have received adequate safety training with respect to working with hazardous chemicals, biological agents, mechanical devices and equipment, and handling of and interaction with animals and that such training is appropriately documented; ensuring that appropriate safety training is provided in all courses taught in Davis College that have content or activities with safety implications and that such training is documented; working with departments to ensure that inventories of chemicals are current and that chemicals are properly handled and stored; distributing university safety regulations and safety-related informational materials to departments in Davis College; and serving as a body that receives input on safety-related issues and concerns from Davis College faculty, staff, and students. The committee will advise the Dean on all matters related to safety of faculty, staff, and students in Davis College.
