DUTIES OF UNIT SAFETY REPRESENTATIVES
Unit Safety Representatives (USR) are volunteers from each group.
They must ensure that the staff under their supervision comply with the safety rules of
the Institute and must initiate appropriate disciplinary action against those who fail to do
so. The unit head and the DSO must be informed of any such action and a record of the
proceedings kept. The USR should informally inspect the area under their control on a
regular basis, at least quarterly, in addition to the formal inspections performed by the
DSO. USR's are expected to be proactive for safety problems on a day-to-day basis and
deal with items as they arise. Any problem, or where advice is required, UCLCI Safety
can be contacted.
