Institutional Safety Committees
The University of Utah has an organizational structure of safety committees to develop strategies to meet or exceed safety standards as outlined by local, state, and federal regulatory bodies.
The Campus Health and Safety Committee provides the overall performance oversight. The remaining committees are responsible for the review and approval of protocols for working with each of the respective subjects and/or materials.
Institutional safety committees provide the University's structure to comply with mandates required for work with specific materials, animal and/or human subjects research.
These committees define the process for and approval of work in these areas to meet the regulatory requirements of the local, state, and/or federal government offices.
