• Reviewing recent accidents; establishing or reviewing preventive measures and any correction deadlines.

• Addressing safety suggestions or complaints.

• Reviewing and investigating reports of hazardous conditions and coordinating corrections.

• Submitting suggestions to department management for safety program improvements.

• Developing and maintaining a system to communicate with others in the department regarding safety issues, such as with posters, fliers, or suggestion boxes

Authority: The Chair of the PMB Saftey Committee is: Professor Anastasios MELIS <melis@berkeley.edu>
