Aren't you really asking what is involved in a lab remodeling and construction review process? This job could reside almost anywhere in the EHS organization and the person responsible could have many other duties. If not, then the job description would be fairly short. We have a policy and procedure for a similar function but it also includes review of all renovations (that meet certain criteria), not just laboratories, with the exception of new buildings. In our case the function resides with the EHS Director.

Good afternoon,

I am trying to put together a proposal for administration that involves creating a lab project manager position that resides within EHS. Do any of you have a position within your EHS department that signs off on all laboratory renovations and new construction? Can you send me information about this position and what the duties are? Does having this position help ensure that your labs are built to your standards?

I appreciate the help.
