I want to make a further important distinction here. Beyond the
difference in being "told" and "feeling" mentioned below, there is also knowing
How does your institution's President, Provost, Dean, Department Chair, and
Principal Investigator (substitute management) translate the feeling into
actions? Rules must be enforced by management?
What have they done in the last week, month, quarter that visibly
demonstrated to their direct reports their accountability for and
commitment to EHS. If you don't enforce the rules, you
don's have rules. You have lipservice.
And, the same rules need to apply to undergrads, grad students, PIs,
and Nobel Prize winners with $100 million NIH grants.

In a message dated 8/10/2012 12:24:44 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
primary message is that accountablity is key, not just being told
accountable for doing the right things, but actually feeling that
indeed accountable, and serves as the base for a successful safety
whether industry or academia, I could not agree
