Quarterly Facility Inspections

Department Safety Committees are charged by University Policy 7-2 to conduct quarterly facility inspections. These should be coordinated at the quarterly safety committee meetings. The results of the inspections should be reviewed at each committee meeting. Common violations noted can serve as an indication of areas where the department needs additional training. Facility problems recorded need to be reported to FIXIT or 831-1141 for maintenance items and the Department of Environmental Health & Safety for major concerns. Inspections can be performed in a variety of ways: self-inspection, committee inspections, peer inspections, Department of Environmental Health & Safety inspection or a combination of these methods.
