Congratulations to the researchers in the Harris Lab, who won a UCD Lab Safety Award! Labs across the campus were assessed by the School/College (College of Letters and Science, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, College of Biological Sciences, College of Engineering, School of Veterinary Medicine, School of Medicine); each lab's review/audit/inspection findings were weighed against those within their School/College. The Safety Services Lab Safety Awards are part of our commitment to recognizing labs with a strong safety emphasis who are doing their part to Think Safe. Act Safe. Be Safe. The awards are endorsed by the faculty-led Chemical and Lab Safety Committee. Criteria for the awards were: Phase 1: Each lab was evaluated on data from lab safety reviews/inspections/audits. Phase 2: Top candidates from each School/College were evaluated via questionnaire by E&S specialists and other stakeholders. Labs were evaluated for their emphasis on safety. Extra Credit: Each lab could make one extra credit submission.
