The goals of the safety audits are different:
- Improve Health and Safety of the workplace
- Harmonize the safety level of all EPFL sites
- Establish a Safety Culture
- Reduce hazardous situations
- Check the safety equipments
Each laboratory is systematically visited at least once a year by the SCC with the participation of the COSEC. After each visit a report is issued and sent to the person responsible for the laboratory indicating the elements that have to be corrected.
Before each visit, the laboratory is required to update the chemical products inventory.
