The CFN Experimental Safety Committee will consist of the members listed below. Additional SME's from the lab support divisions will be added as needed.
The function of the Experimental Safety Committee is to review Experimental Safety Reviews (ESRs) for the department. Also address any other ESH concerns for the department.
The Experimental Review Coordinator will notify a PI approximately 1 month prior to the review date of their annual Experimental Safety Review.
All Experimental Safety Reviews will have to be submitted on the new electronic form when they are reviewed during the next year as their review period comes up. This is in keeping with the new revised SBMS subject area as well as for documentation purposes for our department records.
The committee will schedule a meeting with the PI to review their Experimental Safety Review Form. If members are unable to attend, they may submit their comments prior to the meeting date. During the meeting any need for changes will be discussed. The PI is responsible for incorporating the changes in their document. The Chair of the committee, ECR, FS Rep, and then the Dept. Chair will then sign it off.
At the request of the Experimental Review Coordinator, the committee will be consulted for Safety Assessment Forms submitted by users that fall outside of the approved ESR envelope. If necessary the committee will meet to review the user proposed SAF and make changes to the ESR as appropriate.
The ERC will recommend who will do the walkthrough of the lab space during the annual renewal process.
