Chemical Hygiene Committee (ChyComm)
The Chemical Hygiene Committee promotes safety within the department's laboratories, classrooms, and the building at large. Its mission is to maximize safety for all building residents by developing and monitoring laboratory and health-related protocols and helping to educate and train people to help prevent and respond to emergency situations.
ChyComm is not limited to chemical safety. In the past, committee members have engaged in such things as hosting CPR trainings, organizing mental health safety trainings (suicide prevention), and mini-labs on processes such as how to safely put out a fire.
If you would like to get involved in ChyComm, contact your CEGC representative.
