WEB-045A: The establishment of a culture of responsible science must include a commitment to research safety and environmental protection. This commitment establishes a shared duty among all participants in the research endeavor and at all leadership levels of a research institution, from the President/Chancellor/Provost, to the Principal Investigator, to the research technician and to support staff and students. In turn, a culture of responsible science must develop and promote a climate wherein the reporting of accidents, injuries, "near misses", and unintentional releases of hazardous or regulated materials is and expectation. To encourage and support such reporting at the University of Chicago, a robust and facile reporting mechanism is under development. The goal of this reporting system is to provide the research community with an accessible reporting tool (including anonymous reporting) and to assist the research safety professional in performing accident/incident investigations, in conducting a root-cause analyses, in performing subsequent reporting to regulatory agencies, as needed, and in developing "lessons learned" scenarios that can be published and shared with other investigators, support staff and students involved in similar research activities.

This webinar recording:

  1. Describes the organizational structure of occupational, environmental and research safety programs at the University of Chicago;
  2. Introduces a data management system (Environmental Health and Safety Assistant) that promotes the collaboration of research staff and students with the subject matter experts in the various domains of occupational, environmental and research safety;
  3. Discusses and demonstrates the capabilities of the University of Chicago Accident and Injury Reporting System (ICAIR), a web-based and smart phone application incident reporting tool under development at the University of Chicago.
  4. Provides examples of formal "Lessons Learned" documents derived from incident investigations and root-cause analyses of incidents reported through ICAIR.
