Safety Spotlight

Safety Spotlight is an initiative for the institutional compliance committees, EHS, and Departmental Safety Officers to recognize outstanding contributions to campus safety.


Dr. Madhi Malmali's Research Group 

Department of Chemical Engineering

Dr. Malmali's lab personnel experienced a near-miss in their lab space. They had proactively established monitoring in their lab space to detect carbon monoxide leaks, which alerted personnel to evacuate. The group then worked with EHS to determine the root cause and wrote a Lessons Learned about the near-miss to educate fellow researchers.
