I am curious how various laboratory safety projects are funded at your institution and what annual expenditures are incurred as part of these funds.

Currently I am working to identify annual expenditures and new initiatives that involve research laboratory safety. 

I am looking for thing such as:
  1. Fume hood certification
  2. BSC certification
  3. Autoclave validation
I would love to hear from all of you regarding:
  1. Annual projects are budgeted as part of an EHS budget?  How is that budget created (directly from university funds, direct costs within grants, from indirect costs associated with grants, etc.)
  2. A list of annual projects directly related to research lab safety that come out of EHS funds - not including waste disposal and related costs.
