There were 36 deficiencies found as compared to 47 last semester and an average of 41 over the last 4 years. Comparisons of the number of deficiencies found in the labs with unannounced inspections did not show an increase in the number of deficiencies found. Depending on EH&S’s inspections plans, the committee may conduct all unannounced inspections in the Spring. The largest number of deficiencies were found in the categories of chemical labeling, peroxide checks, and unsecured cylinders. These continually make the top 5. Please focus on these for your next inspection!
