Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory Safety
SAFETY FIRST! is always held in the highest regard when it comes to working inside the IML. Please refer to the specific process or procedure safety protocols BEFORE commencing your work in the lab. There are many processes which require specific PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) you must don before you begin. You should also be aware of the activities surrounding you when you are not alone. If you observe safety protocols not being followed by other lab members, you have a responsibility of informing them or the lab manager to correct the problem.
The IML safety program includes first, a visit to the BSU Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) website where you will read and take a short quiz about general lab safety modules that are applicable to working in the IML and possibly other labs you may be working in. Next, you will have a lab orientation by either the lab manager or one of the lab assistants where you will go over lab specific safety operations and discuss the safety protocols of working with individual equipment. Finally, you must sign off on the IML student users agreement and agree to follow the safety protocols presented to you.
If you have any questions about safety-related matters involving safety in the IML, please contact Pete Miranda (firstname.lastname@example.org), IML Director, at 208-426-5713 or if you have a more general safety question in the College of Engineering, please contact Dick Sevier, College of Engineering Safety Liaison, at 208-426-1022 or email@example.com.
Thank you for making SAFETY a TOP priority in your lab operations.
