| Safety Suggestion Leads Ventilation in the Bay View Cafe
Margie Wylie of Computing Sciences has been recognized with SPOT Award for best CS Safety Suggestion or Near Miss for September-December 2011. Wylie noticed that the grill in the Berkeley Lab's Bay View Cafe was inadequately vented, which allowed smoke and cooking aerosols to hang think in the air—a health hazard to the grill workers, as well as everyone visiting the cafe.
