Our Shared Leadership Council is reviewing the role of the departmental safety officers, and the reporting mechanisms, committtees associated with this role.  If any of you have information to share about your institution and the role of the safety officers, I would be very grateful.  JCAHO requires a chief safety officer, do you have departmental officers as well, and how broad or narrow are their duties?  Do they include Infection control, fire safety, hazmat, MSDS...for their particular location?  Do any of your safety officers include the issue of workplace violence in their role?  Who maintains a complete file of MSDS sheets in your institution, and coordinates the addition and deletion of items?  Is it done by purchasing department? Many thanks for anything you can share in this regard.  Reply to me directly, and I will summarize for the list, IF there is interest.
