Each of us should consider safety and environmental stewardship a personal responsibility and take appropriate measures to protect people and the environment. It is important to remember that individual laboratory safety procedures are the responsibility of the PI. Procedures are to be clearly posted and readily available in each laboratory near the entrance. Additionally, emergency contact information is to be posted on each laboratory door (or near the entrance) identifying how to contact the lab staff in the event of an emergency, leak, equipment failure, etc.
The Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant tests its emergency sirens at noon on the first Monday of every month. The CCNPP emergency evacuation plan is provided to all residents, and can be accessed here.
CBL has a written Safety Program that can be found on the shared “P” drive (safety folder) and below you will find links to campus-specific policies and procedures
Your cooperation is required and appreciated in promoting a safe campus.
