Peter Grivins

Environmental Safety, Health, and Quality Manager

As Environmental Safety, Health, and Quality Manager, Peter Grivins is the FRIB Project’s primary contact to Michigan State University's safety and quality interfaces and works with MSU's Environmental Health and Safety Deputy Manager to safely deliver the FRIB Project.

Peter has more than 14 years of progressively more responsible experience in the areas of radiation-, chemical-, fire-, and laser-safety management. He has managed the MSU environmental health and safety programs at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) with responsibilities for safe day-to-day operations, coordination with regulators and campus stakeholders, and communication with and training of nearly 400 laboratory employees. He reports to the MSU Director for Environmental Health and Safety and is further responsible for machine-produced radiation at MSU as assistant radiation safety officer.

Peter led the development and implementation of NSCL's ISO 14001 environmental management system, which resulted in a Clean Corporate Citizen designation from the State of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for NSCL and MSU, the first such designation earned by a university in Michigan. He also contributed to the development and implementation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) 18001 occupational health and safety management system and the ISO 9001 quality management system.

Prior to his current position, Peter was MSU's first laser-safety officer and directed the safe handling and transport of campus's chemical wastes and emergency response to spills and dangerous legacy materials. He also managed the radioactive waste program at MSU with responsibility for final disposal of campus radioactive wastes.

He earned a BS degree in medical technology from MSU in 1997.
