Campus Laboratory Safety Committees

Laboratory Safety Committees have been established for the TAMHSC campuses in Bryan, Dallas, Houston, Kingsville, and Temple. Committees act as liaisons between laboratory faculty and staff and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety, and they are charged with promoting compliance with regulatory and institutional policies and procedures. Additional responsibilities are outlined in the Laboratory Safety Committee Charter.

Committee Members

Each Laboratory Safety Committee is made up of laboratory faculty and staff, the Campus Safety Officer, and the Laboratory Safety Manager, and they may include other members, such as administrative personnel, as appropriate for that campus. List of current Laboratory Safety Committee members.
