There are certainly instances where a PI is not a faculty member even though it is in the minority of cases.  Graduate students can be PI's on various fellowship and research awards, for example.  When it comes to safety, we use PI/Supervisor more than PI/Faculty because there are plenty of staff positions that come under safety regulations even in academic institutions.
