Each PI/core director or program/unit leader will identify a COVID-19 Safety Officer (CSO)to serve as a representative for their respective area and as a point of contact for department management and the COVID-19 Advisory Team (CAT). HMS will maintain an active list of all CSOs (including jointly appointed and Back-up/Coverage CSOs) and their contact information.

The CAT will provide education and training sessions to CSOs related to their responsibilities and reporting expectations. Read or print out the Assignment of COVID-19 Safety Officer Responsibilities.

Non-compliance issues/incidents not able to be addressed at the department/unit level will be reported to the CAT in a timely manner, ideally within 24 hours, via an online reporting form.
