How to designate a Unit Safety Officer

The Office of Research Integrity and Safety has established procedures for UGA units to designate Unit Safety Officers (USOs) to serve as liaisons between their department, college or center and the Office of Research Safety (ORS) to help ORS ensure that safety and regulatory requirements are being met by lab personnel. USOs should be full-time staff or faculty members within the unit they represent (students are not eligible). The program is voluntary. Visit the ORS website for more information.
