r district! Although the students watch the ACS video, take a quiz, etc., f
aculty are not truly "required" to do anything. At least, we are "supposed"
to do "mandatory" H&S training every year, but nothing happens if you
don't take it!
In my opinion, one of our biggest problems is the uni
on. They fight for tenured, and non-tenured, professors tooth and nail. It
doesn't matter if a faculty member eats or drinks in the chem lab, or if th
ey allow students to eat or drink in the lab, the union will fight not only
to keep them employed, but to make sure that the faculty member doesn't ev
en get a notation in their HR file. As a result, there is no way to e
nforce any safety policies as there are no consequences.
So my quest
ion is this: how can we get union buy-in for faculty following rules and ge
tting reprimanded/fired if they don't? Is there any union/district ou
t there that has negotiated some sort of faculty safety clause where there
are consequences for noncompliance with basic safety rules?
at would positive reinforcement for faculty members look like?

AS-L] Safety contracts
We have all of our students sign a safety
contract at the beginning of
each semester, they are also provid
ed with a copy printed right in the
lab manual for the course the
y are taking. (this avoids any problems
with a student saying "th
ey didn't know" they were breaking a safety
rule because we colle
cted the signed contracts back from them) Unless
there is a
n injury involved all of the contracts are distroyed at the
f each academic year.
