COVID-19 Safety Officers

Department Safety Officers are responsible for safety compliance in your department and may field requests for information and potentially adjudicate concerns or complaints about faculty/trainees/staff who are non-compliant with safety guidelines. 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.
