COVID-19 Safety Officers

COVID-19 Safety Officers are responsible for monitoring COVID-19 safety compliance in laboratory and clinical research environments, disseminating COVID-19 safety information, fielding COVID-19 safety questions and potentially adjudicating/intervening on concerns or complaints about COVID-19 safety violations. Alternatively, you may report a concern about compliance with COVID-19 health and safety policies or regulations directly to your staff supervisor, your human resources representative, or a supervising faculty member.

COVID-19 Safety Officers work with school-wide COVID Safety Committees to refine policies and resolve problems. They are the primary point of contact for EHS in the event of persistent non-compliance. Find your EHS Safety Advisor.
