In Australia we have a Standard AS/NZS 4801:2001 Occupational health and safety management systems. This is a bit like the ISO 9000 quality management system, where you have internal & external audits, and highly controlled documentation etc. It may not be exactly what you are looking for, but it means your compliant departments get a nice certificate with 5 ticks on it to hang on the wall. I know the Brits have the same sort of thing, and I'd be very surprised if the US standards people don't have something similar.

....... Do any of you at academic institutions have a safety recognition program in place? Could you give me a brief description of how the program works and if you think it's worthwhile? I am most interested in academic institions but if you have a program in industry that you're particularly proud of, send it along. Thanks! And thanks to everyone who responded to my lab safety program effectiveness query. Fascinating stuff!
