The Safety Plans developed under this initiative are designed to target those issues or risks relevant to the individual labs. As such, there is a potentially large variability between safety plans. However, all safety plans developed under this initiative should have several common elements.
1) Lab-wide employee engagement: Each safety plan should encourage involvement from as many people in the lab as possible. Each member of the lab should be expected to participate significantly in the plan.
2) Lab-specific design: To enhance safety beyond the base EH&S program, each lab specific plan should address specific issues or risks within the lab.
3) Accountability: A system to account for participation must be developed to ensure that the plan is being implemented as designed.
