The Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) Lab Self-Audit is a web-based program that will be used as a tool to promote a better safety culture throughout the University lab community. The overall goals of the Laboratory Self-Audit (LSA) Program are to:
 
  • Increase awareness of and encourage Promote individual accountability for safety and regulatory compliance
  • Increase awareness of and encourage a proactive approach to environmental health and safety issues
  • Facilitate a better understanding of regulatory compliance
  • Reduce lab relatiReduce lab-related incidents/injuries/violations/fines through encouraging effective communication and training

​If you have any questions, or would like assistance completing the LSA, please contact EH&S at 305-348-3387 or ehs@fiu.edu.

The LSA program will engage Principal Investigators, Lab Managers and laboratory staff to participate in safety and compliance with an easy-to-use, precise checklist. The checklist will be reviewed by EH&S to verify whether safety equipment, standards, and practices required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), other applicable regulatory agencies, and institutional policies are available and observed to be is use in the workplace.

The LSA will be conducted by each area twice per year. The LSA will be used in conjunction with the EH&S annual inspections to identify compliance concerns/deficiencies. This will allow EH&S to assist in implementing corrective actions by educating the lab users on best laboratory practices and procedures.
