1 Conducted By: Date of Inspection: Location: Safety and Risk Management Office Laboratory Safety Inspection Checklist Principal Investigator/Supervisor: General Lab Housekeeping A M S NO NA Comments Laboratory surfaces appear to be cleaned; disinfected or decontaminated after work is performed. General laboratory, storage areas, and benchtops appear uncluttered and orderly. No slip, trip or fall hazards are present. Aisles and exits are free from obstruction No glass containers are stored on the floor. Trash bags & glass containers are removed when full. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) A M S NO NA Comments Protective gloves are available, matched to hazards, and in use. Eye protection is available and in use. Lab coats, Tyvek garments, etc., are available and in use when necessary. Lab personnel are wearing appropriate attire (no shorts, tank tops, open toed shoes, etc.) PPE is not being worn outside of the lab to reduce risk of contamination. Emergency Equipment A M S NO NA Comments Eye wash and safety shower are in good working order, inspection dates recorded, covers are in place, and pathway is unobstructed. Personnel are aware of the eyewash/shower location and know how to operate the equipment. 1

2 Fire extinguishers available, appropriate for type of hazard, inspection dates recorded, and 3 unobstructed clearance. A chemical spill kit for minor spills is available. Chemical Fume Hood (CFH) and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) A M S NO NA Comments CFH not being used as storage (excess materials/chemicals). Air foil and rear baffle unobstructed. Sash at or below minimum height. Kept closed when not in use. Access to CFH is unobstructed. Certification is current (annually). _ Gas Cylinders A M S NO NA Comments All cylinders are properly chained and secured. Cylinder caps are in place on reserve cylinders. Cylinders are properly marked with contents and empty cylinders are labeled and stored separately. Incompatible cylinders are stored separately (oxygen/flammable gas). Chemical Storage and Hazard Communication Chemical inventory and SDSs are complete and available to lab personnel. Primary and secondary chemical containers are labeled with identity, appropriate hazard warnings, and expiration dates. Peroxide formers are labeled with date opened and removed as hazard waste when expired. A M S NO NA Comments 2

3 Chemical storage is well organized and incompatible materials are segregated (oxidizers/flammables, acids/bases). Liquids and hazardous chemicals are stored below eye level (not on the floor) and are stored in secondary containers. Chemicals are stored in compatible containers and cabinets (acids in nonmetal cabinets, flammables in approved flammable cabinets, refrigeration). Chemical containers are kept closed. Unnecessary, unused, or outdated materials are removed for hazard waste disposal. Flammable liquid storage cabinets are properly labeled, kept closed, and have no materials stored on top of them. Waste Management A M S NO NA Comments Hazardous waste containers are labeled with contents, date, and generator name Waste containers are kept closed to prevent off-gassing discharge. Hazardous wastes are not accumulated for longer than 60 days in the class lab or 6 months in research areas. Secondary containers are used to store waste collection bottles in the lab. Syringes and other sharp waste are disposed of in sharps container. General Practice and Procedures A M S NO NA Comments Food & household products used in the laboratory (baking soda, vinegar, corn syrup, tin foil, etc.) are labeled for Lab Use Only. Household appliances (refrigerators, microwaves, blenders, grinders, etc.) are labeled for Lab Use Only. No evidence of eating, drinking, smoking, applying cosmetics, or mouth pipetting inside the lab space. 3

4 Proper signage on the lab door and equipment for any specific hazards (UV, Laser, Radiation, Biohazard, etc.) Lab doors are kept closed at all times and securely locked when unoccupied. Lab specific CHP and SOPs are available to lab personnel and training documented. Vivid online safety training for lab personnel is current. Fire Protection and Egress A M S NO NA Comments Sprinkler heads are unobstructed with an 18 clearance below sprinkler heads around entire lab (24 non-sprinklered) All fire-doors are self-closing and kept closed. Lab registration & emergency contact numbers/location details are posted. Emergency evacuation routes are posted in common hallways and the nearest fire alarm indicated. Electrical A M S NO NA Comments Equipment does not have frayed or damaged wiring. Extension cords are not being used as permanent wiring. Power strips are suitable for the load involved and are plugged directly into the outlet (not daisy-chained ). Laser Safety A M S NO NA Comments SOP is available with authorized users and training dates listed Laser (Class 3b or 4) has been registered with the Safety Office Laser protective housing is intact 4

5 Access is restricted and controlled to prevent accidental exposure while the laser is operating Laser controlled areas are posted with appropriate signage Beam stops are present at the end of all beam paths and are non-combustible Approved safety glasses are available Cold Room Safety A M S NO NA Comments Cold room has an emergency release mechanism Cardboard is not stored in the area Asphyxiates and hazardous gases are stored in ventilated areas only General housekeeping is observed and the area is organized and uncluttered Expired/discarded samples are not stored Safety Office Comments 5
