Bay Area Facilities/Environmental Health & Safety Committee

Mission Statement

The joint Facilities/EH&S committee provides a central forum in the Bay Area life science community for professionals working in these fields to share best practices, participate in continuing education opportunities, and design workshops and events. Topics include construction, permitting, lab/office design, inspections, and other issues involved in operating a facility. Through this committee, Biocom members work collaboratively with local regulators and inspectors to ensure consistency in regulatory application and consideration of the industry in legislative proposals.

  • Serve as a mentoring platform for facility and EH&S managers from smaller companies and those who are new to the field.
  • Keep abreast of regulations and code changes that will impact the life science industry and communicate changes to Biocom staff.
