In order to promote positive change to safety culture in UT labs, the Lab Safety Committee established the Lab Safety Culture Awards Subcommittee at the beginning of this year. The theme for the fourth category of awards was using the ACS’s RAMP model to make a risk assessment about hazardous agents within their own labs.
Quarter 4 awards were distributed in November 2023:
1st place: Abdulrasheed Sado – Graduate Student in Nuclear Engineering
1st place: Anna-Kay West – Graduate Student in Chemistry
3rd place: Elena Ganusova – Research Associate in BCMB
New lab safety culture award categories will be announced quarterly. Submissions are open to everyone involved in research or working in a lab at UT. Announcements of new awards are sent through the Lab Safety ListServ, found on flyers around campus, and communicated during events. Please email Brian Ranger at email@example.com to request to be added to the Lab Safety ListServ if you are not already enrolled.
