In the UC agreement, La Regent, the governing body of the system at the University of California, took responsibility for the laboratory conditions that led to the death of researcher Sheharbano (Sheri) Sangji following a fire in the Harran laboratory on December 29, 2008. Sangji was working with tert-butyllithium, which spontaneously ignites in the air when the piston came out of the syringe. Sangji, 23, was not wearing a lab coat, and his clothes ignited, burned his torso, arms and hands. She died of her injuries 18 days after the fire. The security program defined in the agreement requires safety training for lead investigators and other laboratory personnel. It also contains provisions for standard operating procedures written for a list of chemicals and sets a minimum of personal protective equipment for laboratories. Key investigators should check standard operating procedures and assess whether personal protective equipment is suitable for laboratory methods. The Regents adopt the following policy of resolving disputes, claims and separation agreements, which justifies the authority of the Regents, the President and General Counsel and the reporting requirements on comparisons and separation agreements. Note: The principles of laboratory safety/IIPP courses completed before September 24, 2012 do not conform to the tally. All laboratory workers must receive the system-wide UC Laboratory Safety Fundamentals eCourse, published in 2013 by UCOP. The following proposals for the resolution of claims or disputes or separation agreements are submitted for prior approval to the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Chairman of the Financial Committee or to the Regents: the Los Angeles District Attorney`s Office today dropped the case against the Regents of the University of California as part of a labor law violation agreement regarding the death of a member of the scientific staff of the chemical staff in 2008.

The President is authorized to settle claims and enter into separation agreements if the consideration paid or received by the university is worth $500,000 or less. The settlement of debts or separation agreements when the consideration paid or received by the university exceeds $100,000 is subject to general Counsel`s approval. The provisions for the release of all separation regulations and agreements, regardless of the amount of consideration, have a format approved by the General Counsel. The settlement of debts and separation agreements by the President is adequately funded. Document all laboratory safety training for all staff (staff, students and visitors). Keep your training records, including the new lab worker checklist, ready for inspectors. Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations applies to the entire system for all laboratory operations. The regents` agreement with Los Angeles increases the requirements. All proposals for settlement and separation agreement that must be approved by either the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Financial Committee or the General Council, are accompanied by the recommendation of the General Council and a statement from the source of the applicable fund.
