Focus on Lab Safety
EH&S has issued 2 new lab safety policies: "Laboratory Safety" and "Working Alone in Research Labs". Both policies were reviewed and approved by the University Laboratory Safety Council. The policies apply to everyone working in a research laboratory at SBU, and will help protect laboratory workers from potential exposures to hazardous materials and processes found in the laboratory.
The Laboratory Safety Policy brings general laboratory safety requirements from several documents into one policy so that laboratory workers, supervisors and Principal Investigators can be easily informed about the requirements. The new policy also provides consistency between the EH&S biological safety, chemical safety and radiological safety guidance documents.
The Working Alone in Research Labs provides requirements and guidance to develop a lab specific safety protocol for working alone. Working alone, especially after hours, can be unsafe and should be avoided whenever possible. When it cannot be avoided, other available means to protect lab workers in the event of an emergency situation must be used. The Principal Investigator (PI) has the responsibility to ensure the safety of all lab workers in their laboratory, and after conducting a hazard review, can approve laboratory staff to work alone.
