Laboratory Safety Inspection Form for Tufts University
The following Laboratory Safety Inspection Form provides laboratory staff with information on issues applicable to work practices, equipment, and the work environment. Each item will be evaluated and classified as not applicable (N/A), not observed, satisfactory, and needs improvement. Furthermore, items classified as “needs improvement” are classified as minor (requires correction within 30 days) and major (requires immediate correction). Items noted as needs improvement will have detailed comments outlining concerns, regulatory citation, and or guidance. Note, this inspection does not address issues concerning radiation, biosafety and hazardous waste, and does not replace other inspections specifically covering these subjects.
