Biosafety Information Online (BIO)
Biosafety Information Online (BIO) is a program outlining biological materials work that must be conducted by a Principal Investigator while simultaneously outlining regulatory conditions. BIO ensures compliance with the Institutional Biosafety Committee while limiting liability by clearly outlining containment requirements.
Chemical Inventory System (CIS)
Chemical Inventory System (CIS) is a robust, UC-wide chemical tracking system. CIS establishes inventory tracking standards for the UC system while saving money by cutting auditing timeframes for inventory managers.
Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT)
The Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT) is a UC-wide assessment tool that helps Principal Investigators (PI) identify activities and hazards to ensure that lab personnel are properly protected in their work environment. LHAT provides an on-line solution for PI’s and Lab Personnel that facilitates the review of lab risks, as well as the on-going distribution of personal protective equipment.
Risk Assessment Determinations in Chemical Academic Laboratories (RADiCAL)
Risk Assessment Determinations in Chemical Academic Laboratories (RADiCAL) is a recipient of the 2013 Larry L. Sautter Silver Award for Innovation in Information Technology. RADiCAL is a risk management tool that quickly determines a control-banded Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to provide chemical lab personnel with pertinent information to safely perform their research.
Safety Inspection Tool (SIT)
The Safety Inspection Tool (SIT) is a collaborative effort between EH&S and Information Technology units at UC campuses and EH&S at the UC Office of the President. SIT is an intuitive, onsite audit application for Inspectors that reduces the amount of time any given danger will exist in a workspace. The system is being developed to automate safety processes within each campus.
