California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo currently uses Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) as the Safety Management System. RSS is used on campus to conduct workplace and laboratory hazard assessments, to conduct workplace and laboratory inspections, to compile chemical inventories, and to help manage hazardous waste. The software allows Principal Investigators, Instructional Support Technicians, Equipment Support Technicians, Delegates, and/or other responsible parties to identify and manage risks on campus while meeting safety compliance. RSS is available as a website format. A mobile app can also be downloaded for use on your cell phone or tablet.
