Routine laboratory inspections by the CfA Safety Committees are mandated by the Smithsonian Office of Environmental Management and Safety and are supported by Harvard. The committees use theChecklist available in the next section. The intent of the checklist is to assist
the principal investigator and the laboratory employees in identifying
and maintaining a safe work environment. The checklist enumerates very
general safety items, but is not meant to be all-inclusive. If you have
any questions, please contact the Safety Office.
