The laboratory inspection is conducted with a lab representative and the process consists of three components: documentation, general lab safety and chemical safety. Safety recommendations may also be made during the inspection process based on the risks assessed in the lab environment.
Biosafety site visits include checkups and comprehensive reviews of facilities, equipment and practices. Consultations, discussions and small group presentations regarding topics of interest are also offered by EH&S Biosafety.
EH&S Safety Specialists perform annual safety inspections for all UCLA machine shops and technical areas (dry labs). Inspections generally consist of a review of required documentation, and a walkthrough of the shop which focuses on but is not limited to machine safety, electrical safety, fire/earthquake safety, and chemical handling and storage.
Laser & photobiological inspections are managed by the LPS team.
