Civil and Environmental Engineering Recognized for Safety Efforts
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety announced the first of two inaugural Excellence in Safety awards for the 2019 academic year.
This year’s academic recipient is the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. CEE is being recognized for the efforts of its Laboratory Safety and Chemical Hygiene Committee. The committee, comprised of Stan Vitton, Chris Wojick, Dave Perram, Lisa Cunard, Kiko de Melo e Silva, Jake Hiller and Noel Urban, worked to become campus leaders in both online training and self-inspection. The committee developed a training matrix that matches specific lab hazards to training titles in the PureSafety system, and was one of the first departments to adopt the SafetyStratus system for department-level lab inspections.
CEE thanks Chair Audra Morse for her support of the committee's excellent work, and all of the employees of CEE for their ongoing commitment to safety.
