All of our staff members received new Financial Affairs email addresses this week. Our staff listing has been updated to reflect these changes, so please update your information for us.
Our lab safety calendar is the best way to see what’s going on in our office and what will impact you and your lab. All trainings, inspections, committee meetings and testing dates are listed. Please contact us with any questions regarding dates.
Our staff is constantly working to improve our campus safety program, and this is accomplished in part by improving their personal knowledge and skills. Recently, Darren Moss attended the CDC Symposium. Andrea Davidson, our chemical safety manager, recently submitted a technical session to CSHEMA that was accepted for presentation at the summer conference. Mitch Yerby recently became a certified crane operator after passing his certification tests. We are proud of the accomplishments of our staff and are happy to share this news with you.
The Institutional Biosafety Committee meets next Tuesday, March 4, to review submissions. The next meeting will be held on April 8. The submission deadline is Friday, March 21, which is the Friday before Spring Break.
Fume hood training is listed on the lab safety calendar if you need to sign up. Inspections are also ongoing, and you can find those dates listed on the calendar as well.
The initial training course is now on Skillport, so you are no longer required to come to our office to complete that training. However, you will still need to contact Hal Barrett to have the training session opened. Once the training session has been opened for you, you can complete the training course from anywhere via Skillport.
Our laser registration and inspections are still on hold due to some problems with the release of the new ANSI standards. The organization said that the new standards should be out within the month, so we will release that information when we receive it. We will post inspection dates on the calendar when they become available.
