Shop Safety Self-inspections Due May 1, 2024

March 21, 2024

The annual shop safety self-inspection period is here! As a reminder, shops are asked to conduct self-inspections each year to supplement EH&S inspections in order to promote safety awareness and safe work practices.

Important Update

Expanded Shop Safety Checklist

  • The inspection checklist has expanded to include additional safety considerations for a more thorough safety inspection.
  • Be prepared to spend more time conducting the self-inspections.
    • There are now 10 safety categories, which includes a total of 83 items to check as part of the self-inspection.
    • Review the self-inspection checklist prior to initiating the self-inspections via RSS Inspect.
  • Complete a self-inspection via RSS Inspect by May 1, 2024
    • EH&S will contact you if you haven't completed the self-inspection by the deadline.
    • EH&S will schedule and perform site-specific inspections in October 2024. This second, formal Shop Safety Inspection will include the same checklist items as the self-inspection.
