Safety visits

The Safety Competence Center (SCC) regularly visits all EPFL laboratories to improve the health and safety of all collaborators.

The audit is to control the safety standards and legal requirements, but also to better understand your working procedures and the related risks and hazards.

The audit is announced one month in advance via e-mail.

A reminder sent around one week prior to the announced audit date is used to make an appointment. Do not hesitate to contact the SCC for any hazards/risks intrinsic to your unit so that the SCC could provide the best support possible.

The audit is done with the presence of the CoSEC, and with the laboratory responsible if presents.

To prepare for this visit, the SCC sends to the CoSEC an audit criteria list for the visit of EPFL laboratories.

To allow chemicals management within the EPFL, a chemical inventory update is requested prior to the audit date.
