CLIP groups all elements of a comprehensive safety program into one of two unique categories:

  • Category A: Includes general information that is common to all subject-specific inspections and audits (e.g., training, postings, and signage); are time-sensitive items (e.g., fume hood or biological safety cabinet certifications); have a regulatory inventory requirement (e.g., radioisotope or controlled substances); or are items identified by EHS or an oversight committee as important during the risk assessment and review of application for use of hazardous materials.
  • Category B: This includes in-depth, subject-specific inspections and audits and includes all subject-specific elements.
