Topics in the current issue include:

  • In Memoriam: It is with great sadness that we inform you that Environmental Health & Safety employee Dariusz Czarnota passed away suddenly on July 1, 2012. Dariusz was a Safety Advisor and worked for the University for over a decade. A memorial mass will be held at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, 70 Washington Avenue, New Haven, on Friday, August 24, at 12:00 noon. All friends and colleagues are welcome to attend.

  • Biomedical Waste Requests Going Online!: Starting August 1st, 2012 the Biomedical Waste Pickup and Delivery Request form goes online. This new application allows staff to submit biomedical waste pickup and delivery requests and to order supplies unique to their building.

  • EHS Surplus Chemicals: EHS has updated its free chemical surplus page. We've added photos of the actual chemical bottle available, along with the quantity available, volume of each bottle, manufacturer and catalog number, and an email address to request free delivery!

  • A Grilling Safety Recipe: Did you know that Americans prepare about 3 billion meals on grills each year? Five out of six home grill fires involve a gas grill and the leading contributing factor was a leak or break in hoses or other equipment.
  • Rules of the Road: Jeepers, creepers! When coming to a crosswalk make sure you don't creep into it. Keep the crosswalk clear for pedestrians.
  • Incident Report: A cryovial exploded in a campus laboratory shortly after removal from a liquid nitrogen freezer.


We'd love to hear from you. Tell us what you think!
