The Shop Safety Program is built around the same values of Safety, Compliance, Productivity and Education that underpin the success of UVM's Laboratory Safety Program. Supervisors of these areas should review the Laboratory Supervisor Responsibilities.
UVM's Shop Safety Program includes the following safety practices:
This process is designed to guide safety programming in a vast array of working and learning environments. There are components in each area that may not apply to the specific space for which the program is being designed. Use the tools cafeteria style - pick and choose the applicable items and leave the rest behind. This approach will provide a foundation for a shop-specific safety program.
For shop-specific needs, such as OSHA standards, self-inspection checklists or training materials, please see the links on this page. Risk Management & Safety is available to help design a shop safety program to meet your needs. Begin this process by contacting the Lab Safety Coordinators.
