Laboratory Safety Self-Evaluation Program
EHS is responsible for the safety oversight of the over 1,500 labs at The University of Texas at Austin. Principal Investigators are responsible for safety in their laboratory. The Laboratory Self-Evaluation was designed to assist PIs in identifying safety issues in their laboratory. Each PI is required to submit a laboratory safety self-evaluation every semester (Fall and Spring).
Participation continues to improve University-wide. There has been nearly a five-fold increase in participation since spring 2009.
