EHS Grant Sign-off Requirements
Notice to Principal Investigators:
US Army, Department of Defense, and Department of Energy grants require the completion and submission of an “Environmental Impact Questionnaire”. To ensure the University is complying with federal requirements, a signature is required showing compliance. The Director of Environmental Health and Safety will sign-off on grants utilizing hazardous agents provided the following actions have been completed:
- The questionnaire provides sufficient information to identify the hazards that are anticipated and the precautions that will be taken to minimize these hazards.
- A recent laboratory inspection was completed showing compliance with OSHA (health and safety) issues and USEPA (waste disposal) issues.
- All those actively working in a laboratory and the PI are current with their laboratory safety training.
The EH&S Director will NOT sign off on your grant unless these three issues are complete. Allow sufficient time should you need to resolve any of these issues.
