Safety

Safe operation of our facilities is our highest priority. Each facility has four layers of oversight.

  1. The site managers train students and staff how to use equipment and enforce university and OSHA regulations. Safety glasses, hardhats, first aid kits, PPE stations, lockout tagout kits, eyewash stations are available throughout the facility, and the labs maintain a ID badging system
  2. The Director of Safety for the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure & Environment (Dr. Chris Ferraro, P.E.,) oversees safety operations for all of the labs, including coordinating training activities for the entire school.
  3. The Director of Laboratory Safety for the University of Florida’s College of Engineering (Amy Haberman, A.S.P.) coordinates safety programs across all engineering departments
  4. Environmental Health & Safety oversees safety programs across UF’s 16 colleges.
