In addition to the EHS inspection program that we have in place, we also have a program of monthly self-inspections in place for our labs.  I’m currently reviewing the requirement, to make sure it’s still relevant and useful to our labs.  Before I ask the actual users themselves what their thoughts are, I wanted to solicit some opinions from those of you who also have self-inspection programs in place.  A few questions:


1.       Do you require them, or recommend them?

2.       How often?

3.       Do you find them useful?


If you have other thoughts that I haven’t addressed in my questions, please feel free to share.


Thank you,
