Jazmine Faherty, Donna Kessler, Isabel O'Donovan-Keeley, Kristen St. John, Sandra Troy (chair and recorder), Bernice Weinberg and Kelly Worth attended the June 6, 2002, meeting of the Health and Safety Committee in the Special Collections Room, LSM; Rosalba Barbalace, Libby Hart and Marilyn Tankiewicz were absent.
The agenda continued work on the generic emergency manuals, emergency drills, and CPR training.
Completion of the Emergency Manuals - Final draft copies of the generic emergency procedures manual distributed for a page by page review were approved at the meeting. A cover letter emphasizing the importance of shared responsibility for safety and security in the libraries will accompany the mailing of the manuals to Cabinet. Jazmine Faherty drafted the manual, Kristen St. John updated the preservation sections and Rosalba Barbalace provided Access Services input.
Emergency Drills - Kelly Worth is arranging a preliminary meeting with a university police officer prior to scheduling the drills in New Brunswick. Isabel O'Donovan Keeley will make arrangements for the Dana Library drill and we will be in contact with Libby Hart who represents Robeson Library.
CPR Class - A CPR class is scheduled for June 26 at LSM at 1:00 p.m. Registration is still open for those who may wish to attend. Contact Bernice Weinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am proud to report that the Health and Safety Committee has met regularly on a monthly basis since September 11, 2001 and has completed the majority of its major objectives for the year.
The next meeting of the H&S Committee will be on Thursday June 20 in the Special Collections Room, LSM, at noon.
