Niki and Alex have created detailed standard operating procedures for their lab, including policies and procedures for using and storing energetic materials. They have also implemented a documented process that requires all workers in the lab to review and confirm their knowledge and understanding of these procedures. This has ensured that lab workers are aware of the hazards and risks in their workplace.
During a recent event, the lab workers demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach to lab safety management by responding quickly and correctly to an unsafe occurrence; in doing so, they likely prevented injury and property damage.
We congratulate the Murugesu lab and Niki and Alexandros for their safety leadership, their understanding of their roles and responsibilities with regard to workplace safety, and their outstanding diligence in ensuring the safety of their workplace. They have clearly demonstrated several principles of our safety policy. They have engaged, communicated, and actively participated in the management of occupational health and safety. They have identified and assessed the hazards and risks in their workplace and provided this information to all lab workers.
Well done Murugesu Lab.
