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

lockyer long.jpg CLASSE is committed to protecting the health and safety of all our faculty, staff, students and visitors, the broader Cornell university community, and the environment. The research mission of CLASSE can only be successful if pursued in a completely safe manner. Safety at all times must be our highest priority. Safety is the responsibility of everyone, and we look to each of you to support a safe research environment, to resist complacency, look out for your colleagues, and to continually improve upon our safety culture. The CLASSE Safety Handbook describes the potential hazards in our laboratory and summarizes the policies and procedures that have been worked out by experts for our protection and for the protection of our environment. It is critically important that each of you be familiar with the Handbook and observe its rules and recommendations. If any issues or hazards are not properly detailed in the Safety Handbook, please immediately inform the CLASSE Safety Director.

Nigel Lockyer, Director of CLASSE
