University of Cincinnati and EH&E to Present on Managing Lab Risks at 2020 AIHce EXP
Control Banding to Manage Laboratory Safety Risks
June 3, 2020, 9:15 – 10:15 AM
The University of Cincinnati partnered with EH&E to develop a tool to support management of laboratory safety based on leading indicators of risk. Inputs include inventories of hazards and controls,
training, and laboratory inspection. The output is an aggregate laboratory score and component scores for hazards, controls, preparedness, and hygiene. The tool allows the university to identify labs that may benefit from targeted advising, training, and other means of risk management. Improvement in the university’s lab safety indicators can be tracked over time.
