Research Protocol Safety Survey Instructions

The Subcommittee on Research Safety (SRS) is a subcommittee of the Research and Development Committee (R&D). The membership of the SRS includes staff with related safety expertise who are representative of the geographic makeup of Medical Research Service. The SRS is responsible for coordinating the safety program in all research areas, reviewing written safety plans, procedures involving biohazards, biological and chemical waste, research safety SOPs, training manuals and Research Protocol Safety Surveys for all VA and non-VA funded research protocols. Regardless of funding source, all protocols must be reviewed and approved by this committee prior to implementation.
