1. NEEDLE DISPOSAL
Annie mentioned that information on needle disposal would be published in the weekly "Green Sheet" as a part of the HMC Employee Safety Committee community relations effort. The information would deal with needle disposal outlets for private citizen use (e.g. diabetics, etc.)
2. AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT REPORT
The campus-wide air quality testing and evaluation was completed last November. The report of evaluation, conducted by Healthy Buildings International is now available.
Lillian will e-mail Jan Brown and request that Jan forward to her several copies of the evaluation. These copies will be circulated among the Committee members. Aaron Neilson, General Manager of HMC Dining Services, said that it would be important for this information to be in the form of a "lay person summary" of the full report. Lillian will also request that Jan Brown forward a copy to Tony Pennington, CUC EH&S Manager, and to Theresa Potter, HMC Director of Facilities & Maintenance.
3. ACETONE STORAGE
Chemistry Department plans to store two 55-gallon drums of acetone in the Libra loading dock cage. Since space is minimal, Lillian will contact Tony about specific regulatory storage requirements. Theresa and Chanucey should be contacted concerning lifting and moving the drums.
4. OPEN DISCUSSION
A. Chauncey mentioned that most colleges have sold their large vehicle vans that were used to transport 12 or more passengers. Training for operation of these vans can no longer be obtained through EH&S, but must be obtained through the DMV.
B. Kimberly Rogers in Human Resources will seek information from employees about ergonomics on an "as needed" basis.
C. Serious attention was paid to the matter of numbering the various buildings on the HMC campus. This would aid emergency response personnel in quickly locating the appropriate building.
It was also noted that all of the basement floors of the HMC academic buildings (Jacobs, Keck, Parsons, Beckman, Olin) should be specifically labeled and numbered to promote ease of location.
5. Next meeting will be: Thursday, March 28, 2002, at 11:00am in the Stauffer Lounge, Keck Building.
A computer record and a hard copy of this report will be kept in Lillian McCollum's office (2310 Jacobs).
If you would like a hard copy, send your request to Annie Atiyeh at email@example.com
