The U.S. Chemical Safety Board recognized the progress Texas Tech is making following and explosion in a chemistry lab that seriously injured a graduate student in January 2010. The report compliments university efforts to implement the CSB's safety recommendations such as expanding measures to address and control physical safety hazards and implementing an incident and "near-miss" reporting system.

"We are expecting to report to them this fall that we have met both of their recommendations," said Dr. Taylor Eighmy, TTU Vice President for Research. "We will be sending them a letter saying here is how we've met the two recommendations. We're anticipating that they will then indicate to us that we are no longer a university of concern in their eye."

Tech is the first university to be investigated by the CSB.
