Cornell University Health and Safety Policy

Cornell University strives to maintain a safe living, learning and working environment. Faculty, staff, students, and other members of the Cornell community must conduct university operations in compliance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations, University Health and Safety Board requirements, and other university health and safety standards. The full Cornell University statement applicable to health and safety policies and related responsibilities is Policy 8.6 (pdf).

CLASSE Safety Committee

Safety administration for all CLASSE activities is the responsibility of the CLASSE Safety Committee (membership). A minimum of seven votes is required to implement new policy, and full consensus of those present for such decisions is desirable. This body has a chair, Safety Director, and key representatives from many facets of the Laboratory. The CHESS User Safety Subcommittee (membership) manages safety policy and procedures for CHESS operations and reports on its deliberations and decisions to the CLASSE Safety Committee.

From the Director

Ritchie.JPG Achieving a safe work environment is extremely important, and requires diligence from each one of us. The CLASSE Safety Handbook describes the potential hazards in our laboratory and summarizes the policies and procedures that have been worked out for our protection and for the protection of our environment. It is important that each of us be familiar with the Handbook and observe its rules and recommendations, for our own safety as well as for the sake of coworkers affected by our actions. Please, after you have studied this Handbook (full version on web), bookmark it in your web browser or keep a printed version for convenient reference. If any special hazards in your work area are not dealt with completely in this Handbook, please get more complete information from your supervisor or the CLASSE Safety Director.

Ritchie Patterson, Director of CLASSE
