Self-Inspection Topic for Quarter 3, 2008
Locating General Safety Information

The quarterly topic for Quarter 3, 2008 is Locating General Safety Information. For this quarter, ALL School of Medicine administration and departmental workspaces including labs and shop and shared/common rooms will use the General Workplace Inspection Checklist Q208 Self Inspection Checklist.

The General Workplace Inspection Checklist form was developed to assist Stanford faculty and staff in identifying and when necessary, correcting general safety hazards. Completed checklists and a record of the actions taken to correct identified unsafe conditions are kept on file by the department for three years (Santa Clara County and Cal/OSHA requirements). Periodic inspection and correction of identified hazards is a requirement of Stanford’s Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) and part of the Chemical Hygiene Plan.

Additional support documents for Health and Safety at Stanford and the School of Medicine, Stanford University Chemical Hygiene Toolkit, Preventing Injury and Illness in the Workplace, Laboratory Safety-Related Topics and previous Self-Inspection Quarterly Topics are available online.
