The Health and Safety Coordinating Council has begun the process of revising the Exit Corridor Guidelines and policy for all non-clinical UCSD buildings. A recent survey of corridors has revealed conditions in many campus buildings that may hinder safe exiting during an emergency situation. The faculty-led Health and Safety Coordinating Council will be studying this situation further, and working with the Environment, Health and Safety Department to develop a campus-wide policy to limit storage of material in corridors, along with an implementation plan to have inappropriate material removed if necessary. The new policy is scheduled to be implemented by July 2005.
The current exit corridor guidelines may be viewed at http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/corridor.
The Health and Safety Coordinating Council is soliciting comments regarding the creation and implementation of the new corridor policy. Please contact Doug Harvey, Chemical Safety Officer, in the Environment, Health and Safety Department at (858) 822-1579 or at email@example.com.
