The Safety Officer Program is designed so that every lab has at least one individual who is responsible for obtaining safety information, acting as a liaison with the Division Safety Committee as well as the EH&S Office, providing orientation and safety training to new lab members, providing technical guidance for work with hazardous materials, and serving as an evacuation coordinator.
To aid and support the Safety Officers in the performance of this critical function, the EH&S Office provides Safety Officers with training and a reference binder known as the Safety Officer Survival (S.O.S.) Kit. All of the documents contained in this binder can also be found below under Caltech Resources.
