Abstract
A hazard evaluation was conducted at the William A. White Building, Saint Elizabeth's Hospital (SIC-8063) in Washington, D.C., on July 28 to 30, 1980. The evaluation request came from the safety manager of the National Institute of Mental Health on behalf of the hospital's safety officer. A walk through survey of all William A. White Division laboratories revealed numerous safety and health deficiencies, including improper emptying of trash containers, dirty working conditions, unlabeled containers, improper chemical storage, unavailability of safety equipment, poor lighting, and inefficient security. The author recommends that the hospital's Safety Department be given the responsibility for developing and implementing sound safety and health practices. Several specific recommendations for laboratory work conditions, working with chemicals, and safety equipment are made.
