In an attempt to better serve OSU faculty and staff, Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) hosted an informational seminar for those individuals that we call the “Department/Unit Safety Coordinator” (DUSC). You may be asking yourself, who is considered a DUSC? A DUSC in our experience is an individual who has been either appointed by a Department chair or PI as a safety liaison that represents a Department, PI, or a unit safety committee or who is a person who on their own has taken on general safety issues for their department or unit. This person often works with EH&S on various issues ranging from laboratory safety and fire inspections, to obtaining special use authorizations, hazardous waste pickups or wanting to schedule an ergonomic evaluation.
