Joint Safety Team

The mission of the JST is to elevate safety awareness and to improve and sustain the safety culture in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at The Ohio State University. Partnering with Dow Chemical Company for examples, advice, and resources, the JST will work to develop a mindful and integrated safety culture in The Ohio State University laboratories. A variety of methods will be used to achieve an improved culture of safety. The JST currently consists of all Laboratory Safety Officers (LSOs) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Objectives

An improved culture of safety at The Ohio State University would include:

  • Compliance of minimum PPE requirements in all labs

  • Improved housekeeping of labs - no clutter, no unknown waste, proper storage of all chemicals, etc

  • Increased communication of safety incidents and accidents

  • Fully evaluated, up-to-date, and annually revised laboratory safety operating procedures and training documentation
