LionSafe Risk Assessment (LRA)

What is the LRA?

The LionSafe Risk Assessment is an online tool that captures information about the types of hazards in each work area across the university and provides a customized compliance report outlining safety requirements for the work area based on the hazards identified. This report can be accessed at any time through LionSafe or printed and posted in the work area.

The LRA is currently under development with plans to launch the assessment before the end of the Spring 2024 Semester. The LRA will be rolled out systematically over subsequent months, with Laboratory and Research Groups being the first to complete the LRA.
