EHSO Research Safety Inspection Report Changes

Starting December 2018, EHSO will be using new software to conduct and document Research Safety Inspections for the Emory research community.

Using your feedback, we have updated the reporting format to clearly communicate identified findings and provide recommendations for corrective action. These changes are summarized in Table 1.

Changes to look for:

  • A Corrective Action Summary report will be generated after each Research Safety Lab Assessment (Inspection) and will only include the identified findings (items marked “No”).
  • Corrective actions will be documented by lab personnel by sending pictures, email of corrective action(s), p.o. numbers for items purchased to resolve findings, etc. (as applicable) of the corrected item(s) to the inspector. A Follow-up Corrective Action Summary Report will be generated based on the information provided.
  • When the Follow-up Corrective Action Summary Report is returned to the lab, the Principal Investigator will receive a PI Scorecard that includes the Percentage of Compliance for the initial Lab Assessment (Inspection) and an overview of the completion status of all inspection items marked “No.”
