When a Lab Safety Coordinator or EHRS updates the Lab Hazard Survey, the Principal Investigator will receive an email containing the following text:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your Lab Safety Coordinator has updated the Lab Hazard Identification Survey for your research group. EHRS asks that you click below to certify that the Hazard Identification Survey is accurate: https://penn.bioraft.com/node/######/edit/hazards.  Note that this confirmation can only be performed the the PI of the lab.  Your lab safety coordinator cannot perform this confirmation for you.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Follow the link in the email to the hazard summary page, review the hazards checked and if accurate, click submit located at the bottom of the page.  If incorrect, edit the list before clicking submit.

Pressing submit will take you to your Chemical Hygiene Work Plan.  This electronic document replaces the paper form you may have used previously.  In order to “sign and approve” this document, type your initials in the box and then click submit.  After you click submit, the  Chemical Hygiene Work Plan will be emailed to your  lab members listed in your BioRaft profile.  You are finished at this point.

 

A visual guide to the process is shown below.
