University departmental safety coordinators (DSC) often ask for tips and ideas on high-risk safety meeting topics. These topics ideally should be determined by the DSC or department head, director, or dean. The Office of Environmental, Health, and Safety (EH&S) is always here for assistance in selection of a topic if all else fails.
