Continuous safety communication
During her work as a research specialist and lab manager at CVM, Patricia (Patty) has always raised safety and health consents to EH&S attention and followed up until reasonable results were achieved. During her first weeks of recent assignment as the Research Operations Specialist with Swine Science & Academics (CALS), she immediately recognized unsafe condition for both confined space and chemical exposure issues at the pig farm. Her recognition, notification, and follow up resulted in corrective actions that otherwise could result in serious exposure. She simultaneously is managing a lab in Polk Hall for which she is also bringing up the previous fume hood safety concerns and making sure that the hood replacement project is moving forward.
